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.

Employees say:


“I don’t know every other company’s leave policies but our short-term disability benefits are tremendously helpful. Even when you don’t have to use it, knowing there is some financial security available, as well as job security when illnesses happen is just incredible. It shows a genuine concern for employees’ well-being. Unfortunately, I have had to use it due to a serious illness and surgery, and the support from the team and the company’s resources was tremendous.”


“I have worked for Capital One for a little over four years. It is a great company to work for. I truly enjoy the culture and the values our leaders and associates carry. I have grown with this company professionally and personally tremendously during these years. Leadership creates a great supportive environment making it possible for a new front line manager like myself stepping into a leadership role to be successful. I truly love what I do and love working for such a fantastic company.”
