SBU Ranked Seventh by Forbes for America’s Best Employers for Women

Stony Brook University ranked seventh out of 300 employers overall and was the top higher education institution in the Forbes annual ranking of America’s Best Employers for Women. Earlier this year, the University made the Forbes list of Best Employers for Diversity.

stony brook universityForbes teamed up with market research company Statista to identify the companies liked most by female workers. The list was compiled by surveying 50,000 Americans, including 30,000 women, working for businesses with at least 1,000 employees. Representation at the executive and board levels were taken into account, as were initiatives to improve gender equity. All the surveys were anonymous.

Respondents were asked to rate their organizations on criteria such as working conditions, diversity and how likely they’d be to recommend their employer to others. Statista then asked female respondents to rate their employers on factors such as parental leave, discrimination and pay equity. These respondents were also asked to nominate organizations in industries outside their own.

The final list ranks the 300 employers that both received the most recommendations and boast the most gender diverse boards and executive ranks.
