Gibbons Named One of the 2021 Best Workplaces for Women
September 16, 2021
The Great Place to Work® consulting firm and Fortune magazine have recognized Gibbons P.C. as one of only 25 small and medium companies on their 2021 nationwide list of “Best Workplaces for Women™”. These rankings are based on analysis of survey responses from more than 5.6 million current U.S. employees at Great Place to Work-Certified™ organizations. Gibbons ranked #23 on this year’s Small and Medium Companies list and is the only law firm and the only New Jersey based company to be selected.
The Best Workplaces for Women is one of a series of rankings by Great Place to Work and Fortune based on survey results from employees at Great Place to Work-Certified organizations. This is the second year in a row Gibbons has earned a spot on this prestigious list. In addition, in the past year, these same organizations ranked Gibbons 3rd among the Best Small and Medium Workplaces in Consulting and Professional Services and 7th among the Best Small and Medium Workplaces in New York – the firm’s highest rankings yet in both of those categories – as well as 24th on the rankings of the Best Places to Work for Millennials and 90th on the list of Best Workplaces for Parents, in the firm’s first appearance on either of those lists.
“These companies have made a commitment to fostering equity in the workplace. With the data about gender inequity in mind, the Best Workplaces for Women braved the task of combatting gender inequity by ensuring their women employees feel safe, heard, challenged and valued,” says Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work.
Long committed to the advancement of women in the workplace, Gibbons has implemented numerous strategies to target women professionals for recruitment and promotion, position women for firm leadership and other influential roles, help women attorneys raise their profiles in the business and legal communities, and broadly promote the achievements of our women professionals. The award-winning Gibbons Women’s Initiative (GWI) is a critical component of the firm’s efforts to create a more diverse attorney workforce and leadership team. In addition to Fortune and Great Place to Work, the firm has been honored for these efforts by wide-ranging organizations and publications, including Working Mother magazine, which inducted Gibbons into its inaugural “Best Law Firms for Women” Hall of Fame class, as well as WomenInc. magazine, the Catalyst organization, the Diversity & Flexibility Alliance, and the Women in Law Empowerment Forum, among others.
“Women throughout the firm demonstrate every day the incalculable return on our investment in the programs and platforms that earn Gibbons this kind of recognition,” notes Patrick C. Dunican Jr., Chairman and Managing Director. “The business case for our Women’s Initiative and similar resources is strong and quantifiable.”
Adds June M. Inderwies, the firm’s Executive Director and Chief Operating Officer, “The ongoing COVID-19 situation has made clear that careful consideration of our employees’ all-around well-being and creative, adaptable solutions to unexpected circumstances pay off in every way, and our women employees have been most appreciative of our efforts in these areas.”
