It’s no secret that Macy’s prides itself on hiring and retaining a diverse workforce, filled with talent from unique backgrounds that make our company what it is, which is why we’re excited to share that Macys.com was named a 2016 Top 25 Company for Women Technologists.
Top Companies for Women Technologists is a national program that recognizes companies committed to building workplaces where women technologists can thrive. The national benchmark program named 25 organizations as leaders in recruiting, retaining and advancing more women in technical roles.
“It’s an absolute honor for Macys.com to be recognized by the Anita Borg Institute,” said Mike Robinson, EVP/Macys.com. “We’ve made it a clear and consistent focus to empower, advocate and develop women in technology, and we will continue to promote the importance of gender diversity.”
The Top Companies program is created by the Anita Borg Institute (ABI), a nonprofit organization focused on the advancement of women in computing. The ABI uses different critical metrics to asses each company including the representation of women technologists, and career progression through recruitment, retention and advancement.
According to the ABI, the number of women in technology is increasing; however, there is still a large gender gap in the tech field. It’s important that organizations attain a more diverse workforce as innovation powers the global economy, and women are a crucial element to building technology the world needs.
Macy's is proud to be recognized for our commitment towards this effort, as we know it's both the right thing to do and the best decision for the success of our business.
Joining Macys.com among this year’s Top Companies are American Express, Bank of America, BNY Mellon, IBM and Intel.
