And this supportive culture is truly appreciated by the women who work at Capital Group. For instance, Capital Group “encourages associates to be open, to share, and to celebrate their differences and what makes them unique,” says Laura Wheeler, senior manager of Investment Operations at the firm. “The structure, the history, and the ethos of this company make sure that, throughout the fabric of the organization, you know you are valued, people care, and you are important.”
