ADP Named a Top Company for Women Technologists by Anita Borg Institute for Second Consecutive Year

The national program recognizes companies who are building workplaces where women can thrive and are deeply committed to making change.

The Anita Borg Institute (ABI), a nonprofit organization focused on the advancement of women in computing, has recognized ADP (No. 17 on the DiversityInc Top 50 Companies list) as one of the 2017 Top Companies for Women Technologists, marking the second straight year ADP has participated and made the list.


The national program recognizes companies who are building workplaces where women can thrive and are deeply committed to making change. A total of 63 companies applied to the program this year, representing more than 574,000 technical employees across multiple industries. Those companies were then scored based on seven metrics such as representation, employee experience, programs, and policies. Applicants like ADP who scored above the mean were named to the 2017 Top Companies for Women Technologists list, as well as the 2017 Top Companies Leadership Index. Anita Borg shares its insights with all applicants so they can continue to build more inclusive workplaces.

"It's an honor to be recognized again for ADP's commitment to diversity and inclusion and ensuring that women have opportunities to succeed in technical roles," said Rita Mitjans, Chief Diversity & Corporate Social Responsibility Officer at ADP. "We place an enterprise-wide emphasis on recruiting, retaining and advancing women and provide opportunities for women to lead strategic initiatives through business resource groups and participate in various leadership development programs. We're grateful to partner with the Anita Borg Institute and share in their passion for this important mission."

The acquisition and retention of women has remained an important element of ADP's overall talent efforts. ADP's percentage of new women hires in technical roles across all career levels was in the highest percentile on the Anita Borg Institute Index when compared to other companies surveyed. Retaining technical women is also a critical piece of ADP's talent puzzle, as the company performed strongly on the index's talent retention score, demonstrating that its efforts to maintain an inclusive working environment are working.

"We are proud of our efforts to attract a diverse workforce, and honors like this send a positive signal to both current associates and potential new hires that ADP is committed to the success of women," said Stuart Sackman, Corporate Vice President, Global Product and Technology at ADP. "By partnering with diversity and inclusion organizations, companies can increase the number of women entering the technology industry. We're thrilled to be one of the front-runners in this area."

ADP partners with the Anita Borg Institute as part of its commitment to diversity and inclusion. The company is also sponsoring the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing on October 4, 2017.

#BeingAPoliticianWhileBlack: Woman Calls 911 on State Rep. for Canvassing in Neighborhood

"I asked to meet my constituent who thought I was suspicious, but she was on the road by then," Oregon State Rep. Janelle Bynum said on Facebook.

FACEBOOK

State Rep. Janelle Bynum said police were called on her while she was going door-to-door to canvas in a Portland, Ore.-area neighborhood — her own district.

In a Facebook post on Tuesday, Bynum shared that a resident called 911 on her as she knocked on doors and talked to residents. The lawmaker, a Democrat who's running for re-election this fall, said the caller thought she was suspicious because she spent too much time typing on her cellphone after each house visit.

"Live from the mean streets of Clackamas!" Bynum wrote. "Big shout out to Officer Campbell who responded professionally to someone who said that I was going door to door and spending a lot of time typing on my cell phone after each house — aka canvassing and keeping account of what my community cares about!"

Bynum included the hashtag: #letsbebetterneighbors.

A Clackamas County deputy pulled up to her around 5:10 p.m. on Tuesday while she was taking notes on her cellphone from a conversation, "with someone at the second to last of about 30 homes on her list," according to The Oregonian/OregonLive.

"I don't believe this," Bynum, 43, said she thought when the officer approached her.

When he asked if she was selling anything, she told him that she's a state legislator out canvassing. This was the first time someone reported her to police. In 2016, Bynum won the election to the state House of Representatives.

She said the deputy told her a woman called 911, but the caller's race was unknown. Bynum wanted to meet with the woman, but the deputy said she wasn't at her residence.

"It was just bizarre," she told the newspaper. "It boils down to people not knowing their neighbors and people having a sense of fear in their neighborhoods, which is kind of my job to help eradicate.

"But at the end of the day, it's important for people to feel like they can talk to each other to help minimize misunderstandings."

Bynum's Facebook post comes at a time when there's been multiple reports of authorities being called on Black people only trying to do their jobs. For example, in Southern California, a resident called 911 because a Black firefighter was working in the neighborhood. And in Tennessee, a white woman called authorities on a Black real estate investor for taking photos of a rundown house for which he had a contract to repair.
