Over the years, companies have made considerable progress regarding the quest for gender parity.

Inclusive hiring and retention policies and practices have directly benefited female employees and family-friendly policies have proved popular and effective.

Being fair, flexible and family-friendly is key

In its third annual ranking of the best employers for women, Forbes collaborated with market research firm Statista, surveying 75,000 Americans, including 45,000 women, working for businesses that employ more than 1,000 workers. The respondents spanned 31 industries and were asked to share their opinion on a series of statements about their respective employer’s culture, opportunities for career development, image, working conditions, salary and wages and diversity.

Respondents were first asked to rate their organizations on criteria such as working conditions, diversity and how likely they'd be to recommend their employer to others.
