What are the Best Workplaces for Women?

Each year several publications release a list of the best companies for women to work for. Fortune, Forbes, Business Insider and FairyGodBoss all compile lists, but the longest running and most respected list belongs to Working Mother, which has been publishing the 100 Best Companies Award for over 30 years. Their list has helped define criteria for evaluating workplaces on things like flex policies, parental leave and advancement programs for women.

While the lists are compiled each year, several companies have a long-standing history of making the grade. The following businesses have made the Working Mother’s 100 Best Companies list for over 20 years:

American Express

For the past 15 years, Working Mother has also awarded the Best Companies for Multicultural Women.
