  • Delta ranked No. 67 on a list of 75 large U.S. employers, the only airline on the list.
  • The award is based on both anonymous survey results and data on how well women are represented at Delta.

  • More than 4.6 million U.S. employees were surveyed.

Great Place To Work® and Fortune have named Delta Air Lines as one of the country's Best Workplaces for Women, the third year in a row the airline has earned this honor.

The list considered employee surveys from hundreds of businesses in all sectors of the economy. The ranking gauged women's assessment of their organizations' culture, leadership, fairness and other elements essential for a great workplace. Delta placed 67th on the list, and is the only airline to be included.

"We are proud of making this list for a third year in a row, and are always looking for even better ways to create an inclusive, engaging and welcoming culture for all," said Joanne Smith, Delta's Executive Vice President and Chief People Officer.

This year Delta once again achieved 100 percent pay parity. Learn more about the ways Delta is working to close the gap for women in the workplace here.

To determine the Best Workplaces for Women, Great Place to Work analyzed anonymous survey feedback representing more than 4.6 million U.S. employees. Most of the ranking is based on what women themselves report in a 60-question "Trust Index" survey about their workplace, and how fairly those experiences compare to men's reports of the same workplaces.

Fifteen percent of the remaining rank is based on how well represented women are in the workforce and throughout management, considering industry trends. To be considered, at a minimum, companies need to employ at least 50 women, at least 20 percent of their non-executive managers need to be female, and at least one of their executives needs to be female.

"These winning companies are thriving because women have an equal seat at every table where critical decisions are made," said Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work. "Organizations like Delta know that creating a great workplace where everyone can succeed regardless of gender is not just the right thing to do, but a must-do if you want to be the very best of everything in the marketplace."

A complete list of winners is available at the Great Place to Work site.

The Best Workplaces for Women list is one of a series of rankings by Great Place to Work and Fortune based on employee feedback from Great Place to Work-Certified™ organizations.
