CA Technologies Named One of 25 “Best Companies for Multicultural Women” by Working Mother Magazine


ISLANDIA, NY, May 15, 2012—CA Technologies (NASDAQ:CA) has been selected by Working Mother magazine as one of 25 “Best Companies for Multicultural Women” for its ability to hire, retain and advance multicultural women. The report is featured in the June/July issue of Working Mother and online at multicultural women. This is the 10th anniversary of the initiative.

"As a global company, CA Technologies is committed to diversity within the walls of our company and beyond.  We recognize that our ability to succeed and excel in the market place depends on our people and diverse perspectives,” said Beth Conway, Vice President, Human Resources for CA Technologies. “Thanks to Working Mother for recognizing our commitment to diversity. We are honored to be acknowledged for the second consecutive year."

Working Mother Media President Carol Evans writes in the magazine, “We’ve built a dialogue that’s ongoing, that doesn’t stop, that includes women all over the country, that makes people comfortable talking about race and gender, that shifts the culture of our companies, that joins with other dialogues and other voices and stories to impact the culture of our country.”

This year, multicultural women at the manager level represent 14 percent of all management promotions at the 25 Best Companies – an increase of one percentage point over 2011; and women of color make up 14 percent of all top earners, a significant increase over their representation last year of 11 percent. 

Methodology

The Working Mother Best Companies for Multicultural Women were selected based on their answers to 391 questions on representation, hiring, attrition and promotion rates, recruitment, retention and advancement programs, and company culture. The Working Mother Research Institute created a scoring algorithm based on the previous year’s benchmark results to determine the winners.

“The Best Companies for Multicultural Women value the power of a diverse workforce and work hard to make sure their pipelines are filled with talented women of color,” says Jennifer Owens, director of the Working Mother Research Institute. “Even beyond mentoring and networking programs, these companies are reaching out to professional and school groups and sponsoring recruitment events to attract the best multicultural female talent.” Please visit us on Twitter @_workingmother, as well as at facebook.com/workingmother.
