OAK RIDGE, Tenn.—The Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE) has been named a Best Diversity Company for 2009 Diversity/Careers magazine. ORISE was one of only four organizations to be ranked as a diversity leader in the "research" topic area, and one of 98 organizations to be ranked highest overall.

Each year, Diversity/Careers—a publication that spotlights minority groups in technology-related fields—asks its readers and web site visitors to name those organizations that "do the best work in diversity" and then rank them based on 1) support of minorities and women; 2) attention to work/life balance; and 3) commitment to supplier diversity.

From the list of submissions, the magazine then selects those companies that received the most positive responses as a best diversity company. The award for the highest ranking organizations in these areas is then categorized by topic.
