To find leaders who were at the forefront of the diversity movement, we first identified companies with reputations for successfully leveraging diversity. We then assessed their progress at creating inclusive cultures by examining, where available, employment statistics, leadership attitudes, and thirdparty recognition. (Information pertaining to employment statistics and third-party recognition was collected using public sources.

Leadership attitudes were assessed on the basis of public sources, published interviews, and involvement in diversity initiatives.) We also took cultural differences into account.

For example, 6% of the Japanese automaker Nissan’s management is female, a ratio that sounds dismal from a U.S. citizen’s vantage point.

During its heyday, in the 1980s, the traditional keiretsu system—an arrangement in which buyers formed close associations with suppliers—was the darling of business schools and the envy of manufacturers everywhere. Although there was some tentative movement in the West toward keiretsu- like supplier partnerships at the time, the rise of manufacturing in lowwage countries soon made cost the preeminent concern. Most Western companies today wouldn’t dream

2005, Nexera canola and sunflower seeds, used for making cooking oils, have become one of Dow

Chemical’s best-selling product lines. The seeds and the oils offer many advantages: The seeds yield more than twice as much oil per hectare as soybeans, making them an attractive crop for farmers. The oils’ longer shelf and
