Forbes: Ivy Tech makes list of best places for women to work

Forbes has chosen Ivy Tech Community College as one of the top 100 best employers for women.

Forbes teamed up with research company Statista to identify companies most liked by women workers and that include female representation at the executive and board level. The rankings also take into account initiatives to improve gender equity and recent or unresolved allegations regarding discrimination or misconduct.

Ivy Tech was one of only two community colleges to make the list and one of 21 educational institutions.

Women make up 59 percent of the school system’s nearly 4,000 employees. That includes 64 percent of the full-time workers, 60 percent of the full-time faculty and 54 percent of the part-time employees. 50 percent of the school’s leadership team are women.
