Ranking Recognizes Company's Leadership in Advancing and Supporting Women in the Workplace
FAIRFAX, Va., Aug. 17, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Forbes has named global consulting and digital services provider ICF (NASDAQ:ICFI) one of America's Best Employers for Women in 2022.
"We are deeply committed to creating and sustaining an equitable and inclusive culture for all of our employees," said John Wasson, ICF chair and chief executive officer. "Grounded in our purpose and strong values, we aspire to create a workplace where every employee can thrive, grow and feel supported. We are proud to be recognized for our commitment to advancing and supporting our women colleagues."
Forbes partnered with market research firm Statista to survey 50,000 Americans—30,000 women and 20,000 men—working for businesses with at least 1,000 employees. Respondents were asked to rate their organizations on criteria such as working conditions, diversity and their likelihood of recommending their employer to others. Responses were reviewed for potential gender gaps, then female respondents were asked to rate their employers on factors such as parental leave, discrimination and pay equity, and to nominate organizations in industries outside their own.
The final list recognizes the 400 employers that received the most recommendations and have the most gender-diverse boards and executive ranks. Earlier this year, ICF was also included on Forbes' America's Best Management Consulting Firms list, for the seventh straight year, and its Best Employers for Diversity list, for the second straight year.
