NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Daversa Partners, the technology industry’s premier executive search firm, announced today that it has been honored by Fortune Magazine and Great Place to Work® as one of the 2022 Best Workplaces for Women. This is Daversa Partners’ first time being named to this prestigious list, a nod to three decades of intentional and inclusive culture building, with the company ranking 17th overall among small and medium workplaces. Earning a spot on this list means that Daversa Partners is one of the best companies to work for in the country.
The Fortune Best Workplaces for Women list is highly competitive and is the only company culture award in America that selects winners based on how fairly women say they’re treated at their workplace. Great Place to Work measures the differences in women’s survey responses with those of their peers and assesses the impact of demographics and roles on the quality and consistency of women’s experiences.
To determine the Best Workplaces for Women, Great Place to Work analyzed the survey responses of over 640,000 women who work for Great Place to Work-Certified™ companies that employ at least 50 women. Companies must also have at least 20% of non-executive managers who are women, and at least one executive who’s a woman. In the Great Place to Work survey, 98% of Daversa’s employees said Daversa is a great place to work. This number is 41% more than the average U.S. company.
“For decades, we have built this culture intentionally and deliberately. In our first year we were a company comprised mostly of women. We have never strayed from our mission, and this remains true to this day, thirty years later, ” said Paul Daversa, Founder and CEO. This is the core of who we are. Our leadership set a vision to build a majority female-led company knowing there would be no glass ceilings if we created a different kind of company. This honor is not only a testament to all of the women at Daversa Partners, but to the collective firm for building a remarkable and inclusive workplace for all.”
Laura Kinder, President at Daversa Partners said, “It is an honor to be ranked among the Best Workplaces for Women. I am so proud of Daversa Partners and of the incredible women at this firm. Paul and the entire leadership team have championed women in the workplace for the past 30 years. This multi-decade commitment is reflected in our leadership team and firm wide (with 64% of the company being women, and 56% at the leadership level). I have always considered myself fortunate to work in a company without glass ceilings, unbridled opportunity, and support from my colleagues of all gender identities.”
“Congratulations to the Best Workplaces for Women and their commitment to ensuring equity for women at every level of the organization,” says Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work. “These companies showed up for women in new ways to help them cope with challenges they face wherever they are—both inside and outside of work. Women in these companies are seen, heard and valued.”
