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.

Marriott International

David Doyle Photography

Employees say:


“Marriott truly promotes a sense of professional achievement coupled with a family atmosphere. If there is an associate that is in need, we rally. When an associate isn’t performing their job, we rally to train them and help them be successful. I am proud of this company because I believe they strive to do the right thing—we have ethics.”


“This company offers and supports employees’ desire to work in different teams. You can see it played out in the number of people who have long careers with MI. It’s not uncommon to hear about 10, 15, 25 years working at the company. It’s inspiring!”
