Award recognizes PPL’s commitment to ensuring a diverse and inclusive culture, work-life balance and career development for women.
PPL Corporation has been recognized as one of America’s Greatest Workplaces for Women 2023 by Newsweek and Plant-A Insights Group.
“We are incredibly proud to receive this recognition from Newsweek,” said Angie Evans, VP and chief DEI officer for PPL Corporation. “The award highlights our efforts to build a diverse and inclusive culture as we continue to innovate and grow our company.”
Newsweek and Plant-A Insights Group identified America’s Greatest Workplaces for Women in the United States by conducting a large-scale study based on over 224,000 company reviews. Companies were evaluated based on a variety of factors, including corporate culture, working environment, work-life balance, training and career progression, as well as compensation and benefits.
“Women face unique challenges in the workplace,” said Nancy Cooper, global editor in chief for Newsweek. “These challenges can range from unequal pay and a lack of representation in leadership positions, to discrimination and sexual harassment. Raising awareness of inequities in the workplace is the first step toward rectifying them. And it’s equally important to highlight those companies that are leading the way.”
In addition to juggling challenges in the workplace, very often women are balancing the demands at home as well. For busy working moms, having a supportive employer that understands and values the importance of family life is imperative.
In honor of Mother’s Day, PPL employees (and moms!) shared their views on balancing motherhood with their careers:
