Freeman®, the world’s leading provider of live events and brand experiences, has been named one of America’s Best Employers for Women by Forbes. Thousands of companies were considered for this award, and less than 3% made the list.
The Best Employers for Women 2020 is a recognition of Freeman’s efforts around diversity and inclusion such as culture, opportunity for career development, image, working conditions, salary, and more. Since 2011, Freeman’s women development program, Freeman Forward (FWD), has promoted female leaders and promotes diversity and inclusion of all kinds.
“For the last decade, Freeman has focused on helping women reach leadership levels throughout the organization. What started as a grassroots movement, The Freeman Women’s Development organization (FWD) has created a culture of support for women and diversity overall,” said Dawnn Repp, chief legal and administrative officer, and cofounder of FWD. “Being family-owned and people-focused as a company has created a foundation for us to build careers that promote an enriching life of learning, creativity, growth, and fulfillment for all.”
“The Freeman manifesto states that all employees can expect a ‘career experience to promote an enriching life of learning, creativity, growth, and fulfillment,’” said Freeman CEO Bob Priest-Heck. “We’re not ready to declare absolute victory in the fight to ensure diversity and equity at Freeman. But as an organization grounded in design thinking, we know that diversity is critical to success in an industry that demands innovation — this affirmation encourages us to push harder.”
