The Best Employers For Women In 2020 [Infographic]
Back in January of this year, U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics data revealed that women held more jobs in the U.S. workforce than men, accounting for 50.04% of all positions. Experts believed that the trend was going to continue and gain even more momentum until the coronavirus pandemic arrived and caused economic carnage across the country.
Even though there were 109,000 more women employed than men across the U.S. in January, work still needs to be done to eliminate gender discrimination. In late 2018, the Washington-based Institute for Women's Policy Research said that women were earning just 49 cents to the typical man's dollar, considerably less than the 80 cents usually reported.
Many companies are bucking the trend, however, and that prompted Forbes and Statista to work together to identify America's Best Employers for Women in 2020 - the third edition of the annual ranking.
