Commitment to Diversity
How does Nielsen feel about diversity?
Nielsen is committed to accurately measuring a broad range of consumer behavior representing a wide range of ethnicities, cultures and organizations worldwide.
Your opinions and ideas matter. And no two consumers are the same. That is why we’ve invested in the best technology, the best methodology and the best people we can to assure that all ethnic communities are fairly represented.

At Nielsen, diversity is not just a goal, it is a business imperative. Our effectiveness at embracing the talents of people of different backgrounds, experiences and perspectives is key to our continued success in providing clients with information they need to succeed, and in making certain that all communities and individuals we depend upon to provide us with information about consumer behavior understand who we are, what we do and agree to participate in our consumer samples.
Our Emerging Leaders Program (ELP) plays a key role in transforming the organizational culture of Nielsen so that it more closely reflects the diverse perspectives of the world that we live in. Through special training and guidance, the program is designed to nurture personal growth and enhance leadership skills of college students or recent university graduates. During their term in the program, candidates are exposed to a diverse and challenging set of rotational assignments, intensive training, mentoring and unparalleled opportunities to network with and learn from our most senior leaders. Upon graduation from the program, participants are well prepared by their fast-tracked experiences to take on a critical role within their area of expertise.
We have visited more than 70 campuses around the U.S. searching for the best talents interested in the areas of Client Solutions, Financial Leadership, Human Resources and Operations & Technologies. Through career fairs and speaking engagements, our staff is able to interact with students and share career opportunities within the ELP. As a result of our wide-spread national recruitment efforts, we have been able to award over 120 internships and co-ops as well as add 145 full-time hires to our workforce.
