TAMPA, Fla. — Moffitt Cancer Center has been named one of the 2019 Top 10 Nonprofit Companies for Executive Women by the National Association for Female Executives. This is the 10th time the cancer center has appeared on the list, which recognizes organizations that identify and advance women through their ranks. The announcement is featured in the April/May issue of Working Mother.
"It is always rewarding to be recognized for Moffitt’s commitment to the advancement of women into leadership roles," said Yvette Tremonti, Moffitt’s chief financial and administrative officer. "It is critical that we continue to support and enrich a culture that acknowledges successful women. With nearly three-fourths of our workforce comprised of women, we are thrilled to celebrate our achievements."
Moffitt is joined on the NAFE Top 10 Nonprofit Companies for 2019 by Bon Secours Virginia Health System, CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield, Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, CSAA Insurance Group, Dayton Children’s Hospital, Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey, Northwestern Memorial Healthcare, WellStar Health System and Yale New Haven Health System.
This list recognizes U.S. nonprofit organizations where there is a strong focus on best practices that demonstrate effectiveness in moving women to senior ranks, including mentoring, sponsorship, involvement in employee resource groups and leadership development training. The list also highlights company benefits, including flexibility, corporate culture, and CEO involvement in advancing women.
"In 2019, a woman’s journey up the corporate ladder still differs from a man’s, but the Top Companies stand out in their application of remedies," says NAFE president Dr. Betty Spence. "They are models of how to progressively move women into senior roles, as reflected in their strong representation in the leadership ranks."
