Forbes Names TIAA Among Best Employers for Women

Originally published at TIAA ranked No. 8 on The DiversityInc Top 50 Companies for Diversity list in 2022.


Forbes has named TIAA, a leading provider of financial services, one of The Best Employers for Women in 2022.

“Inclusion, diversity and equity are at the core of TIAA’s mission,” said Sean Woodroffe, TIAA Chief People Officer. “It is an honor to be recognized as a company dedicated to empowering women, because we know that a diverse workforce is beneficial to all. While we pause to celebrate how far we’ve come, we know there’s more work to do and TIAA is proud to be the change.”

The list includes a broad range of industries, including financial services, travel and leisure, media, education, healthcare, and insurance. This year, the list was created through an independent survey by Statista that included approximately 50,000 employees in the U.S. at organizations with at least 1,000 workers. The sample included more than 30,000 women.

The companies were evaluated based on four areas:

  • Direct recommendations – General work topics: Employees gave their thoughts on the likelihood of recommendation, atmosphere & development, image, working conditions, salary & wage, workplace and diversity regarding their own employer.
  • Direct recommendations – Topics relevant to women: Women rated their employers on parental leave, family support, flexibility, discrimination, representation & career and pay equity.
  • Indirect recommendations: Participants evaluated the diversity within other employers in their respective industries.
  • Diversity among top executives / board: An index was created to show the number of women in executive management or board positions.
