Even if only 16 Fortune 500 companies share detailed demographic information about their employees, it’s important to point out that the data that is available represents the race, gender and job category of more than 800,000 people – everyone from the CEO through service staff.

That’s an awful lot of workers. If that group were one giant U.S. company, it’d be second only to Walmart in terms of size.

And it would take at least 26 skyscrapers to give each of those 5,089 executives and senior officials a corner office.
