Westat is ranked as #219 on the Forbes 2022 Best Employers for Women, an annual ranking of companies that identifies firms valued most by female workers. The data are based on a survey of 50,000 Americans, including 30,000 women, working for companies with at least 1,000 employees. Four hundred companies made the cut this year for the award; Westat is listed in the industry category of Professional Services.
“It’s gratifying to get this recognition consistently from our colleagues,” notes President and CEO Scott Royal, Ph.D. “We place great importance on our culture of equity and inclusion, and work hard to offer all employees opportunities for meaningful work and growth.”
The survey is a representative sample of the U.S. workforce and is based on general workforce topics, topics relevant to women, indirect recommendations provided by women on employers in their specific industry, and diversity among top executives and board.
