Aptar today announced it has again been named one of the World’s Top Female-Friendly Companies by Forbes. Aptar is ranked 70 out of the 400 companies included for 2022. For this ranking, Forbes partnered with Statista to identify global companies leading the way in supporting women in the workplace and world at large.
“We are honored to be included on Forbes’ World’s Top Female-Friendly Companies list for the second year in a row,” said Shiela Vinczeller, Aptar’s Chief Human Resources Officer. “This award reflects our diverse, equitable and inclusive culture, which has allowed us to retain and attract female talent. Our Board of Directors is comprised of 40% women and our executive committee is 37% women. Aptar is also progressively increasing the percentage of females in senior leadership positions because we understand the value of female leadership and how this can enrich both our business and the lives of our employees.”
Marcia Thomas, Director, Global Diversity & Inclusion, shared, “This year we continued to make great strides on our diversity, equity and inclusion journey. We know that by supporting employees through mentoring and our women-led employee resource group, ALIGN, we can ensure that we have the most capable leaders at all levels of the organization.”
Multi-national companies were evaluated through an independent survey of 85,000 women in 36 countries. A three part methodology was used to generate the ranking.
This methodology included the employee score where women rated their employers performance across a series of gender-related topics, the public opinion score which surveyed how women perceive companies in terms of gender equality and the leadership score which includes the objective criteria such as the presence of women in leadership positions both within the organization and on the Board of Directors.
