Dallas, Texas, Sept. 19, 2016 – Momentous Institute, owned and operated by Salesmanship Club of Dallas, is one of the 2016 Best Workplaces for Women, according to global research and consulting firm Great Place to Work® and Fortune.

Momentous Institute ranked No. 89 out of 100 workplaces nationally, marking its first ever appearance on the list. Rankings are determined based on employees’ assessments of communications with management, options for development and training, and support for work/life balance, among other factors. The ranking also takes into account how well-represented women are within the workforce overall and in management and executive positions.

“Women make up 83 percent of our staff members and 79 percent of our executive and management positions—all providing critical leadership, expertise and innovation to help make our organizations what they are today,” said Teri Isaacs, Executive Director of Salesmanship Club of Dallas.

Momentous Institute has 140 staff members – including mental health experts, teachers, researchers, fundraisers and administrative staff – all of whom contributed to the Great Place to Work survey.

“We prioritize strong social emotional health for the kids and families we serve, and we believe that approach starts with how we treat each other as colleagues.” said Michelle Kinder, Executive Director of Momentous Institute. “Our entire team of amazing women and men puts this commitment into action on a daily basis. The tone is set from the Salesmanship Club members and runs throughout the organization.  We work daily to create a workplace culture where women – and all employees - - feel empowered to do their jobs, make decisions and have open conversations with leadership.”

About the Best Workplaces for Women

Published together with our partner Fortune, the 100 Best Workplaces for Women rankings are based entirely upon feedback from more than 137,762 women at Great Place to Work–Certified companies. Women completed our anonymous Trust Index© survey, answering questions about how frequently they experience the behaviors that create a great workplace, including, for example, their assessment of how fairly they're treated regardless of gender, the quality and authenticity of communications with managers, and equitable pay and promotion practices. Women’s anonymous responses resulted in a total score for each company, which was compared to the benchmark for organizations of that size, and ranked accordingly.

Results from the survey are highly reliable, having a 95% confidence level and a margin of error of 6% or less. Winning a spot on this list indicates the company has distinguished itself from peers by being a great place to work for women, and has a workplace where women have high representation in the total employee population and in management positions. The 100 companies with the highest employee ratings and female representation were selected for the list.
