TI has earned a spot on Minority Engineer magazine's 2012 "Top 50 Employers" list and on the National Association for Female Executives' (NAFE) list of the Top 50 Companies for Executive Women.
Minority Engineer's Top 50 Employees
Readers of Minority Engineer magazine selected TI among the top 50 companies in the country where they would most prefer to work or believe are progressive in hiring minority engineers.
The results reflect the responses provided in an annual reader survey mailed to randomly selected readers of Minority Engineer magazine.
"This recognition is significant because it confirms that potential minority hires are aware of TI's leadership position among companies that are focused on fostering a diverse and inclusive work environment," said Steve Lyle, TI's Chief Diversity Officer and director of Education & Workforce Development.
"TI has some of the most talented people in the world. The diversity of that talent at all levels within the company continues to make us even stronger."
TI's No. 39 ranking will be featured in the Winter 2011/2012 edition of Minority Engineer magazine, which became available in February across the U.S.
NAFE's Top 50 Companies for Executive Women
For the seventh time, TI secured a place on NAFE's list of the Top 50 Companies for Executive Women.
This list recognizes organizations whose policies and practices encourage women's advancement and whose numbers at the highest leadership levels demonstrate that commitment.
"The key concern of talent executives at major companies today is women's advancement to the highest ranks," said Dr. Betty Spence, NAFE president. "NAFE emphasizes the importance of ensuring that women enter the leadership pipeline early and then have the training, exposure and sponsorship they need to succeed."
The 2012 NAFE Top 50 Companies application included more than 250 questions on topics ranging from female representation, hiring and attrition to promotion rates, access and usage of key retention and advancement programs.
The application drew particular attention to the number of women at the highest ranks and those with profit-and-loss responsibility.
To be considered for a NAFE award, companies must have a minimum of two women on their board of directors and at least 500 employees in the U.S.
Strong results for women
A new NAFE report, conducted by the Working Mother Research Institute, revealed that women hold nearly one in four positions at the top companies and oversee divisions with more than $1 billion in revenue. This report also found that women hold 23 percent of all board of director seats at the top companies compared with 16 percent across the Fortune 500.
'TI is proud to be recognized as a leader in recruiting, retaining and advancing women throughout the company's management and technical ranks," said Lyle "We remain committed to helping women at all levels succeed."
NAFE serves members nationwide with networking opportunities, tools and solutions to strengthen and grow their careers and businesses. TI will be featured in NAFE magazine's annual Top Companies issue, which will be distributed to NAFE members around the U.S in the February/March 2012 issue.
