The Forbes Best Employers for Women results are based on an independent online survey of employees working for U.S. companies with at least 1,000 employees. A total of 1,200 companies were considered. Participants in the survey were asked about pay equality, parental leave, discrimination, representation and many other topics related to women in the workforce. Women's responses were weighted more heavily than male participants.
