Forbes’ annual ranking of America’s Best Employers For Women that was recently released includes a couple of prominent Iowa employers — Principal Financial Group and University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics — ranking No. 26 and 44 respectively among some of the top U.S. organizations. Forbes teamed up with market research company Statista to identify the companies liked most by female workers. The list was compiled by surveying 50,000 Americans, including 30,000 women, working for businesses with at least 1,000 employees. Representation at the executive and board levels was taken into account, as were initiatives to improve gender equity and recent or unresolved allegations regarding discrimination or misconduct.
