Northwestern Memorial is among the Top 10 Nonprofits to make the prestigious list, which recognizes organizations who have established policies and practices to encourage women’s advancement, and whose employment records demonstrate that commitment.
“This honor is affirmation of our dedication to a culture where women are encouraged to hold leadership roles and make substantial contributions to the organization,” said Dean L. Manheimer, senior vice president, human resources at Northwestern Memorial. “We have a long-standing commitment to providing programs and supports that help women achieve a work-life balance and grow in their careers.”
Programs and benefits at Northwestern Memorial include quarterly women’s leadership networking events, on-site childcare, tuition reimbursement and flexible scheduling.
In addition to assessing corporate programs and policies dedicated to advancing women, NAFE examined the number of women in each company overall, in senior management roles and on its board of directors. NAFE drew particular attention to the number of women with profit-and-loss responsibility.
