The future looks bright for women at this healthcare company, who comprise 40% of all executives leading $1-billion-plus businesses. Their employer (a signatory to the White House Equal Pay Pledge) carefully scrutinizes its own rolls for salary inequities, and probes hiring and promotion data for barriers or bias. In 2016, 95% of women promoted to the manager level and above used flexible work arrangements; all full-time employees can take 40 paid hours of personal/family time off annually. Adoption and surrogacy aid are $20,000 per child, while fertility benefits reach $35,000; all have just been made available to same-sex couples.
