Chair­man & CEO Miles D. White Ex­ec­u­tive VP, HR Stephen Fus­sell

Many moth­ers launch ma­jor ca­reers at this health­care com­pany, where lead­ers set goals around hir­ing and ad­vanc­ing women; in 2016, 47% of all em­ploy­ees in man­age­ment roles were fe­male. Se­nior ex­ec­u­tives are held ac­count­able for help­ing women suc­ceed, and the ex­ecs’ bonuses are im­pacted by how well the women do. Moms rave about the support they’ve re­ceived when faced with per­sonal chal­lenges (a child’s surgery, a cancer di­ag­no­sis, the loss of a spouse), adding that man­agers have helped them re­duce their hours, work re­motely and com­press their sched­ules. The on-site child­care cen­ter at HQ helps too, serv­ing 471 kids and charg­ing slid­ing-scale fees.
