Wal-Mart Shatters Glass Ceiling
A new report by the National Association for Female Executives (NAFE) has named Wal-Mart, the retailer everyone loves to hate, a great place to work if you're a woman, placing it on the "2007 Top 35 Companies for Executive Women" list NAFE releases each year.
"At Wal-Mart, we invest in all of our associates. We are dedicated to enabling women to succeed in and outside the workplace. Whether it's offering industry-leading career training programs and creating opportunities for advancement or providing a network of support, we are committed to the women within our company," said Charlyn Jarrells Porter, senior vice president and chief diversity officer for Wal-Mart.
The company noted that 21 percent of its board of directors are women, and that women are significantly represented across all executive positions within the company. Other companies that made the list include Sallie Mae, Office Depot and Prudential. Check it out [here].
