Praxair Named One of America's Best Employers for Women by Forbes


(NYSE:PX) has been named one of the best U.S. employers for
women by Forbes. The list was compiled based on the results of an
independent survey of 40,000 people across the U.S., working at
companies with at least 1,000 employees.

"We are honored to be named by Forbes as one of the best employers for
women in 2018," said David Strauss, vice president and chief human
resources officer for Praxair. "Commitment to gender diversity is not an
option, it is a necessity. This recognition demonstrates our dedication
to creating a workplace that values diverse perspectives and believes
that a variety of experiences result in a more productive work

The survey was conducted independent of any employer input. Employees
were asked to provide anonymous feedback and to rate their organizations
on criteria such as working conditions, diversity and how likely they
would be to recommend their employer to others. Forbes then asked female
respondents to rate their employers on factors such as parental leave,
discrimination and pay equity. The final list includes the 300 employers
that both scored the highest on the survey and have the most gender
diverse boards and executive ranks.
