NEW YORK, NY – Today, the NonProfit Times announced that Girls Who Code has been selected as #5 on their 2023 Best Nonprofits to Work For list. The NonProfit Times, the leading national business publication for nonprofit managers, has partnered with Best Companies Group to identify nonprofit organizations where leaders have excelled in creating quality workplaces.
This survey and awards program is designed to identify, recognize and honor the best employers in the nonprofit industry, benefiting the industry's economy, workforce, and businesses. The list is made up of 50 organizations.
“Girls Who Code is thrilled to be included in The NonProfit Times’ list, alongside so many other amazing organizations,” said Tarika Barrett, CEO of Girls Who Code. “Over the past year, our team worked tirelessly to continue to fulfill our mission of closing the gender gap in tech, by innovating our virtual offerings and bringing back in-person programming in a meaningful way. We’re grateful that we were able to provide our staff with the support they needed to succeed and remain committed to living our values and fostering a workplace that we can be proud of.”
To be considered for participation, organizations had to fulfill the following eligibility requirements:
Must be in business a minimum of 1 year;
Must be a nonprofit organization with 501 (c)(3) status;
Have a facility in the United States;
Have a minimum of 15 employees in the United States; and,
An organization may enter as a group of nonprofits or as an individual organization as long as each participating organization is a separate legal entity (separate subsidiary). Branch offices may not enter separately from their parent nonprofits unless they are separate legal entities.
Nonprofits from across the United States entered the two-part survey process to determine the Best Nonprofits to Work For. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated organization's workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems, and demographics. This part of the process was worth approximately 25% of the total evaluation.
The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. This part of the process was worth approximately 75% of the total evaluation. The combined scores determined the top nonprofits and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process, analyzed the data, and determined the ranking.
