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 second annual list of the 100 Best Workplaces for Women highlights companies with generous benefits, flexible schedules, and an emphasis on balancing work and life. Rankings are determined by employee surveys and the representation of women within the organizations.

Employees say:


“Personal and professional growth is highly supported, encouraged and fostered by leadership that feels like they truly care about you. You are listened to, understood and appreciated for who you are, not who they want you to be. I’ve worked for companies in the past who wanted me to be a version of myself that best suited them and their business. Never before have I felt like I can truly be free to be myself and feel safe and secure with my job at the same time.”


“This is a life-changing company. I have never been treated so well by an employer. The people that work here are exceptionally smart and driven but also exceptionally warm and caring. It’s a very special place to be. They seem genuinely interested in me as a person and my professional growth.”
