20 Companies With Equal Opportunities, According to Women

20 Companies With Equal Opportunities, According to Women

When there’s a level playing field at work, women feel more valued and satisfied. Shocking, right? Who wouldn’t want to feel like they are valued for the work they do, regardless of gender?

Today, we’re not just talking about the pay gap, although that’s a big issue too. Many companies favor men for promotions and perks over women who are better qualified. At InHerSight, we dare to ask: “Do women and men have equal opportunities in your workplace?"

This week, we are diving deep into this topic from a data perspective. We dug into the data and insights that women have shared with us on more than 50,000 companies in the US to find the workplaces with the highest scores for equal opportunities.

Here’s a list of the companies that made our Top 20:
