Dallas-area garners nine places on best employers for women list

August 9, 2018 by  

A new Forbes survey shows nine Dallas-Fort Worth area companies are among the top for women workers.

A recent report from the U.S. Census Bureau shows that for every dollar male employees, make their female counterparts make only 80.5 cents. This combined with the national attention to the #metoo movement shows the disparity women still face at work. However, it appears Texas companies, including those in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, are serving women workers well.

It is likely that some of the organizations on the list will be discussing with their stationery printers on how to include their ranking in their promotional materials.

With the help of Statista, a market research company, Forbes determined the country’s best 300 employers for women. One Dallas-Fort Worth employer cracked the top 100; Frisco Independent School District came in at No. 64. Other area employers on the list include No. 124 – the University of North Texas, No. 167 – Southwest Airlines, and No. 217 – Mary Kay.

Statista arrived at its rankings via surveys individuals at organizations employing at least 1,000 workers filled out. Criteria used for making the list included job potential, diversity, gender gaps, working conditions, and the likelihood of women recommending their employer.

At the top of the list in The Lone Star State were Keller Williams in Austin, which came in at an impressive No. 6, and Houston’s No. 11-placed Texas Children’s Hospital.
