FedEx Services Named One of PINK Magazine’s TOP COMPANIES for WOMEN
MEMPHIS, Tenn., Aug. 6, 2008—PINK magazine today announced that FedEx Services is among the 13 companies honored on its second annual list of the Top Companies for Women, as featured in the magazine’s September issue.
FedEx Services also placed on last year’s list.
PINK solicited nominations from America’s leading companies before narrowing the field based on responses to nearly 100 questions and data points related to women’s advancement. Among the criteria the magazine evaluated:
• Power – the number of women in board seats and C-suites, and with P&L responsibility;
• Pipeline – leadership training, mentoring and coaching programs designed to retain and advance talented women;
• Pay – evidence of pay equity, including the percentage of women in the top fifth of payroll.
“These companies are true leaders in the advancement of women,” says PINK’s founding editor, Cynthia Good. “While each of them has plenty of room for improvement, they all realize that moving women to the top goes beyond issues like maternity leave and flextime. It’s also about giving women real authority to change the corporation and achieve their career dreams.”
PINK magazine features a new generation of America’s most influential women who are doing great things in their work and in their lives – redefining success in the 21st century. Published seven times in 2008, PINK offers the only national magazine and conference series dedicated exclusively to women’s professional growth. Visit pinkmagazine.com for more information.
