"At Lincoln Financial, we strive for women to feel empowered to lead,
inspired to learn, and driven to meet new challenges," said Lisa M.
Buckingham, chief people, place and brand officer for Lincoln Financial
Group. "We are deeply committed to a positive workplace culture, one
that provides solutions to help women take charge of their careers, as
well as find balance for the things that matter most in their lives. We
are so incredibly honored to receive this recognition, and I would like
to thank all of our company's amazing women for their many contributions
that have led to Lincoln's success!"

To determine the list, Forbes partnered with market research firm
Statista, which surveyed 40,000 Americans, 25,000 of them women, working
for businesses with at least 1,000 employees. Respondents were asked
about working conditions, diversity and how likely they would be to
recommend their employer to others. Female respondents were asked to
rate the employers on parental leave, discrimination and pay equity. The
final ranking reflects employers that both received the most
recommendations and boast the most gender diverse boards and executive
ranks.

"We have a vibrant workforce comprised of many unique perspectives to
advance our position in the marketplace and provide support to our local
communities," said Allison Green, senior vice president, Diversity,
Inclusion and Employee Engagement. "Women continue to provide the
crucial insight, decision-making and results that solidify our position
as an industry leader. Our women stand strong in enabling us to
actualize Lincoln's vision moving forward."
