MGM Resorts International (MGM) was ranked No. 199 on Forbes’ list of America’s Best Employers for Women 2018
Forbes, in partnership with the research firm Statista, compiled the annual list by independently surveying more than 40,000 employees working for companies employing at least 1,000 people within the U.S. The sample included more than 25,000 women.
The survey measured participants’ feelings about their employers in a variety of categories, including topics relevant for women. Women were asked to rate their own employers regarding parental leave, family support, flexibility, discrimination, representation and career. Additionally, participants were given the chance to evaluate other employers in their respective industries.
The survey also evaluated companies based on diversity among top executives.
Currently, women make up approximately 51 percent of MGM Resorts employees, and about 44 percent of the company’s managers are women. The MGM Resorts Foundation also organizes the Annual Women’s Leadership Conference, one of our country’s premier conferences dedicated to the development of women for leadership and advancement in all walks of life. This year’s conference will be held on Aug. 27 and 28 at MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Proceeds from the conference, after costs, are donated each year to a nonprofit organization that supports women and girls.
