LexisNexis is Honored to Receive Awards Based on Feedback from Women Employees and Employees of Color

Mike Walsh has been CEO of LexisNexis Legal & Professional since 2010 and is strongly committed to all facets of Inclusion & Diversity as well as the company’s mission to advance the rule of law around the world. These are the second consecutive awards for both honors, as Mr. Walsh was named Best CEO for Women and Best CEO for Diversity in 2020 on Comparably.

Award Methodology

This set of Comparably Awards is derived from sentiment ratings provided by employees who anonymously rated their CEOs and employers on Comparably.com during a 12-month period (June 23, 2020 through June 23, 2021). There were no fees or costs associated with participating, nor was nomination required. To qualify, Large companies (500+ employees) must have met a minimum of 75 employee participants and Small/Mid-Size companies (less than 500 employees) needed a minimum of 25 participants. Additional weight was given to CEOs and companies with more employee participation, for statistical significance. The final data set was compiled from 10 million ratings across 60,000 U.S. companies.
