Moffitt Cancer Center Recognized on Forbes’ Best Employers for Women 2023 List
TAMPA, Fla. — Moffitt Cancer Center has been honored on the Forbes list of America’s Best Employers for Women 2023. This prestigious award is presented by Forbes and Statista Inc., the world-leading statistics portal and industry ranking provider.
The Best Employers for Women have been identified in an independent survey from a sample of more than 60,000 U.S. employees working for companies employing at least 1,000 people within the United States. The sample included more than 40,000 women.
“We are honored and elated to be highlighted on the Forbes list of Best Employers for Women. This prestigious recognition reflects our commitment to fostering a diverse and inclusive workplace,” said Amy Durham, vice president of Human Resources Operations. “It is our firm belief at Moffitt that empowering and supporting women in their professional journeys is essential in creating an environment that nurtures talent, embraces diversity and champions gender equality.”
The evaluation was based on four criteria:
- Direct recommendations – (General work topics): The employees were asked to give their opinion on a series of statements surrounding atmosphere and development, image, working conditions, salary and wage, workplace, and diversity regarding their employer.
- Direct recommendations – (Topics relevant to women): To focus on topics which are in general more relevant for women, women were asked to rate their employers regarding parental leave, family support, flexibility, discrimination, representation and career, and pay equity.
- Indirect recommendations: Participants were given the chance to evaluate other employers in their respective industries that stand out either positively or negatively concerning diversity. Only the recommendations of women were considered.
- Diversity among Top Executives / Board: Based on extensive research, an index was built based on the share of women in executive management or board positions. Statista researched this data for each company using publicly available company information.
