LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Yum Brands Inc., parent company of the A&W All-American Food, KFC, Long John Silver's, Pizza Hut and Taco Bell brands, has been named one of Black Enterprise Magazine's "40 Best Companies for Diversity".
 
Black Enterprise's third annual list of the best companies for diversity is featured in the July 2007 edition.
 
The magazine made its selection based on the level of African-American and ethnic minority representation in four categories including: supplier diversity, senior management, board of directors and total workforce diversity. The magazine evaluated diversity programs, consulted with diversity experts, and surveyed more than 1,000 of the country's largest public companies and more than 50 leading global companies with significant U.S. operations.
 
Yum Brands has been recognized several times in recent years for its commitment to diversity. More than 50 percent of Yum's U.S. workforce are minorities as well as more than 50 percent of the company's new hires.
 
Yum supports minority entrepreneurship through its sponsorship of the National Minority Supplier Development Council and is a founding member of the National Minority Franchising Initiative, the International Franchise Association's Diversity Institute and the Women's Franchise and Distribution Forum.
