100 Best Workplaces for Women

See our methodology and credits



Published together with our partner Great Place to Work, the 100 Best Workplaces for Women rankings are based entirely upon feedback from more than 137,762 women at Great Place to Work–Certified companies.

Women completed our anonymous Trust Index© survey, answering questions about how frequently they experience the behaviors that create a great workplace, including, for example, their assessment of how fairly they're treated regardless of gender, the quality and authenticity of communications with managers, and equitable pay and promotion practices.

Results from the survey are highly reliable, having a 95% confidence level and a margin of error of 6% or less. Winning a spot on this list indicates the company has distinguished itself from peers by being a great place to work for women, and has a workplace where women have high representation in the total employee population and in management positions. The 100 companies with the highest employee ratings and female representation were selected for the list.

Fortune's Take On Acorda Therapeutics
  • More Than 150 Biotech Leaders Sent President Trump a Letter Slamming His Travel Ban
    They did not mince words.
  • Why drug price controversy is great news for this hedge fund manager
    As drug stock prices tumble, one hedge fund manager's loss is another hedge fund manager's gain.
