In recent years, companies have been — slowly — improving workplace conditions for female employees. Though the wage gap, office place harassment, and meager maternity and family leave options still remain major issues, some companies are making bigger strides than others.
Fortune recently released its annual ranking of the "Best Workplaces for Women," which takes a look at how some of these companies rank in terms of accessibility for women employees.
"In recent years, U.S. companies have made big strides in creating office cultures that cater to the female half of their workforce," Fortune explained, going on to highlight factors such as schedule flexibility, paid leave, harassment policies, and more.
Fortune teamed up with Great Place to Work in order to survey thousands of women across the nation. From there, the survey results were processed to shed light on the workplaces in the country that "go above and beyond for their female employees."
For 2017, a health care nonprofit called Texas Health Resources has taken first place. The nonprofit, which is comprised of 70% women in executive positions, "promotes a culture where the best idea wins—regardless of the seniority of the person who contributed it," an employee explained.
Here are the top 10 companies for women, according to Fortune:
- Texas Health Resources
- Ultimate Software
- Edward Jones
- Marriott International
- Pinnacle Financial Partners
- Wegmans Food Market
- Navy Federal Credit Union
- Delta Air Lines
