For the last several years, companies in Silicon Valley have released diversity reports that provide snapshots of the demographic makeup of the industry. But a new report out Friday weighs companies’ recruitment, retention, leadership, and social impact to create a more comprehensive picture—and scored ranking—of tech's diversity.

HP tops the list compiled by startup Blendoor with a score of 87. That figure takes into account a leadership team that’s 29% female and 14% people of color. Its workforce overall is 33% women, 7% black, and 14% Latinx.

HP is followed closely by Paypal, Intuit, Yelp, Apple, and Cisco. You can see the full list here.
