Forbes teamed with Statista to identify companies leading the way to support women inside and outside of their workforces, including making meaningful changes to address the burdens women have faced during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We are honored to be included in the top 10 of the World’s Top Female-Friendly Companies by Forbes as we further our progress in diversity, equity and inclusion,” said Shiela Vinczeller, Aptar’s Chief Human Resources Officer. “We are focused on recruiting, supporting, mentoring and career planning for women at Aptar so that they can assume a greater number of leadership roles at all levels.”
Marcia Thomas, Director, Global Diversity & Inclusion, shared, “As the pandemic has brought about new challenges, Aptar is placing an even stronger focus on supporting women and advocating for greater equality. We are enhancing our ability to support women by organizing internal conferences and networks. We also recently launched our first employee resource group aimed at advocating for the upward progression of women while connecting all employees across the organization.”
This is the first time Forbes, in partnership with Statista, has published this list. Multinational corporations were evaluated and selected through a global survey of over 85,000 women in 40 countries. Company rankings are based on the responses from employees, public opinion and an overall leadership score – awarded based on the share of the Board of Director and executive leadership positions held by women. Statista also asked participants to rate companies on criteria such as pay equity and paternal leave and how companies are using their platforms to promote gender equality.
