Anheuser-Busch Tops In Diversity Practices

Anheuser-Busch Tops In Diversity Practices
By Ines Bebea

FAIRFIELD - Anheuser-Busch Cos. recently received the best diversity company award by readers of Diversity/Careers in Engineering & Information Technology magazine. The online survey focused on readers' perceptions on the various diversity practices of 100 companies.

"The survey was really focused on perception, and it showed that the brand is well recognized for its diversity efforts," said Jordan Weiss, director of advertising sales for Diversity/Careers in Engineering & Information Technology magazine.

"They are a big conglomerate that is creating opportunities for everyone."

This is the first time that the 15-year-old New Jersey-based magazine has conducted this type of survey. The national magazine has a circulation of 100,000 readers and receives 3.5 million hits on its Web site per month, said Weiss.

"Our readers based their information on what they see in our magazine and other publications," Weiss said. "The survey was something we wanted to do for a while. We wanted to leverage the amount of traffic that our site receives, as well as get feedback from our readers."

Anheuser-Busch is a St. Louis, Mo. based company, that operates the Budweiser plant in Fairfield. The company received its ranking based on career opportunities for women, minorities, people with disabilities, volunteering, as well as the company's overall diversity supplier program.

"Anheuser-Busch is proud to be recognized once again for our efforts to promote a culture of inclusion at our company," said Tim Farrell, vice president of corporate human resources for Anheuser-Busch Cos. Inc. "This award is especially gratifying because it recognizes the company's focused diversity efforts in typically male-dominated IT fields and it reflects the public's appreciation of those accomplishments."
