LITTLE ROCK, Ark.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Windstream, a privately held communications and software company, has been named a Top Employer, Top LGBTQ+ Employer and Top Supplier Diversity Program for 2021 by Black EOE Journal.

“We are honored to be recognized for our diversity and inclusion initiatives by Black EOE Journal,” said Mary Michaels, chief human resources officer at Windstream. “Our company celebrates the authenticity and uniqueness of our people and their ideas.

Each year, DiversityComm, Inc. (DCI) and its six diversity magazines conduct select evaluations of the nation’s Employers, Supplier Diversity Programs, Industry Leaders, Law Enforcement & Government Agencies and Schools. The evaluations also integrate findings by each magazine independently to identify “Best of the Best” in relation to outreach and accessibility to the minority, veteran, female, people with disabilities and LGBTQ+ population. These non-biased studies are a valuable resource for the publication’s readers, jobseekers, business owners, students, senior management, and consumers.

“We strive to encourage other companies to follow the lead and ultimately create a more diverse workforce,” said Mona Lisa Faris, president and publisher of DCI.
