Today, Fairygodboss announces the launch of job listings and job-seeker resources for women in our community. In doing so, we are proud to partner with Accenture, Dow Jones, GE, Johnson & Johnson, OnDeck, Salesforce and Square. These seven companies are leaders in gender equality at work, and are demonstrating their continued commitment to advance women in the workplace through the Fairygodboss employer program.

For the past year, Fairygodboss has become an invaluable tool for women seeking information about workplace culture and policies from other women. While our site has become a place for women to share hard-to-discuss workplace topics and issues with each other, we have always known that we wanted to add the employer’s perspective and official company information about policies and programs.

Our initial employer partners have created beautiful pages on our site to showcase the benefits, programs and initiatives they offer to support employees. Their pages give female job-seekers access to detailed benefits and gender diversity data that can be difficult for women to uncover. In addition to giving job-seekers a sense of their commitment to gender equality, women can also apply for a wide range of open jobs directly on these pages.

Many employers tout themselves as female-friendly places to work, and many lists describe the “best employers” for women but Fairygodboss allows women to speak for themselves. Our launch partners embrace transparency, and understand that progress on gender equality involves a certain amount of vulnerability to hearing the unvarnished truth.

“We believe that transparency creates trust,” said Julie Sweet, Accenture’s Chief Executive Officer – North America. “Fairygodboss is helping to change the game for women who want to easily identify companies that enable them to succeed both professionally and personally. We are excited to be part of a new level of collaboration and connection among women in the workplace.”

In addition to understanding that transparency can be a strength, our partners have worked hard to promote transparency in multiple ways. “At Salesforce, we promote an open, transparent culture and we encourage candidates and employees to share their feedback,” said Cindy Robbins, Executive Vice President of Global Employee Success, Salesforce. “A critical step to closing the gender wage gap was increasing transparency, and platforms like Fairygodboss are essential to advancing the conversation around gender equality and pay equity.” Robbins made waves recently when she spearheaded the equal pay assessment to address wage differences between men and women at Salesforce.

Finally, our employer partners understand there is heavy competition for female talent. "In the tech space, the competition for qualified female talent has never been greater. Fairygodboss has a strong proposition that allows employers like OnDeck to reach ambitious women and speak directly to the topics and issues that they consider when choosing a job," said Lorna Hagen, SVP People Operations at OnDeck.

We’re so proud to be working with employers who care about diversity and supporting women in the workplace. “GE is always seeking ways technology can improve the world. We’re excited to see how Fairygodboss can motivate the current discussions around work life integration via their platform. The success of diversity at GE is seen in our innovation. We want to continue accelerating the advancement of women to create a strong company and a better world, ” said Susan Peters, SVP Human Resources at GE.

If you’re a woman in our community looking for examples of how employers support women — you may want to learn about the programs at these companies. And if you’re in the job market, you would be hard pressed to find employers who care more about advancing women. These female-friendly companies are offering open jobs in customer support, software development, sales, product management and many other areas. Check them out, and please let us know if you have any questions or feedback!


Fairygodboss is committed to improving the workplace and lives of women.

  • Hello,
    I have worked for 6.8 years in Financial sector ( Stock Exchange and a Bank). I had to quit my job in bank and relocate to another country because of my marriage. It's been two years now that I am unable to find a job in this country in banking or finance. Honestly, there is a part of me who does not want to get into numbers anymore. Throughout my career, customer service was my strength. I love talking to people, solving their problems, it makes me happy. Now I am stuck at home. I need to be financially independent but at the same time I need to find the right career for me. Kindly guide what all career opportunities I can explore after banking with a post graduation diploma in Banking. And how can I get into Hospitality Industry? Thanks.

  • Hi - I recently left my job and became pregnant. I am 12 weeks pregnant and job hunting. Its possible that I will have a couple of job offers in the next month. At what point in the interview/offer process do I tell an employer that I'm pregnant? Are there companies that will hold my job during maternity leave even though I won't qualify for FMLA? I'm also concerned with affecting a new relationship with an employer by revealing that I will be going on leave in six months. Has anyone else experienced this? Looking for facts and words of encouragement!

  • I recently came back to work after my maternity leave. It's a busy job, and I've been squeezing in pumping breaks in between meetings. Yesterday, my coworker actually asked to come into the pumping room to discuss a project since she couldn't find time on my calendar. How do I explain that this is NOT OK?!

  • I am trying to change career paths. I was laid off in Nov. 2016. I spoke with a master resume writer yesterday who recommended an entirely new resume, LinkedIn overhaul, valuation letter and summary/biography all for close to $3000. I also received a call for an interview for a part-time job, $10/hour, no benefits. Needless to say I burst into tears by the end of the day.

    I had high hope when I obtained my law degree (especially after working full-time & attending night classes). I've tried contacting the law school and my undergrad career centers but have received only nominal assistance. They both wished me luck, gave me login's to their job portals and had nothing more to suggest.

    Someone mentioned networking & I agree that is an option but here in Michigan is comes with a fee to attend events, seminars or join associations. I understand we are all trying to make money but I graduated from law school during the recession and have 6 figures in student loans. I also am running out of unemployment.

    The master resume writer explained only 15% of people get hired from online applications. Is that true? If so then why are we even bothering with an online system at all? She suggested I find the hiring manager & connect with that person. The hiring manager is sometimes 2 people deep in the company so how do I find the person who told HR that they need a person for X job?

    I've reached out to people on LinkedIn and have not gotten much response or advice. Are there any mentors or HR people that can suggest anything that is free? My mom thinks I should go back to school but with a BA and JD that I am still paying for adding to the debt with no promises that another degree will land me a job doesn't seem wise.

    I am frustrated, disheartened and angry that the process of finding a job has become so convoluted but understand why it has. I've read so many articles on LinkedIn that they conflict with one need a cover letter, no you need a pain letter, don't bother you don't need these because HR won't read it. Your resume needs skills, don't list your skills, list dates, don't list dates, take off references. Which article do I believe? Adding insult to injury the unemployment agency here requires your resume to be uploaded to the talent network. Do you know what companies contacted me expressing interest in my skill-set? Tru-Green lawn care as a fertilizer sprayer and a local manufacture as a line-worker. Is that all I am capable of and are they even reading my resume?

    If there is anyone out there who can help please respond and as 1 talk-show host says everyday at the end of her show remember to "be king to one another".

  • I am feeling very frustrated & disheartened & hoping someone can offer some advice. I have been laid off since November (still). I had a free consultation call with a master resume writer who said I need to overhaul my LinkedIn profile, my resume, do a biography to summarize my education/work so I can switch industries. She also recommended a valuation letter all for close to $3000. She explained that only 15% of people applying online ever land the job which is a dismal reality I seem to be a part of.

    Apparently, I need to find the hiring manager for any posted job I am interested in & connect with that person. Ok great--but sometimes that person is 2 levels deep in a company so how do I go about that? Rarely is the hiring manager the person posting the job or receiving the resume. My unemployment is running out, I am still paying law school loans & cannot justify paying close to $3000 at this time for a resume/brand overhaul that may or may not work. I was contacted for a part-time job as a travel clerk for $10/hour with no benefits. Is this where we are now in the employment arena? If so why would anyone who sees my struggles want to get a college education?

    My mom is suggesting I return to school but since I've reached 6 figures in student loans for my law degree I don't see any value to adding another degree. I know networking is the best route but here in Michigan networking consists of paying to attend an association's seminar, workshop, etc... I know there is going to be some who think that the investment in the resume/brand, seminars, events, etc... will pay off but there are some, like me, who are still struggling to get on their feet from the recession fall-out. Are there any suggestions or mentors who can suggest a website or group where mentors are able to help for free? Like a certain talk-show host says at the end of her show...."Be kind to one another".
