About Forbes Magazine List of America’s Best Employers for Women
For the second year running, Forbes partnered with market research company Statista to identify companies doing the most to support their female workforces. Statista surveyed 60,000 Americans, including 40,000 women, working for businesses with at least 1000 employees. Respondents were asked to rate their organizations on criteria such as working conditions, diversity and how likely they would be to recommend their employer to others. Female respondents were asked to rate their employers on factors such as parental leave, discrimination and pay equity. They were also requested to nominate organizations in industries outside their own. The final list ranks the 300 employers that received the most recommendations and have the most gender-diverse boards and executive ranks.
