Each organization completed a detailed applciation covering both internal and external programs and activities that benefit women. The 2012 application included sections on Company Profile, Workforce Profile, Women’s Issues & Advancement, Company Culture.

Completed applications for the 2012 NAFE initiative were collected on line from December 10,2010, to March 11, 2011, and also from August 19 to October 7th, 2011.

Winning companies were selected from a pool of self-selected applicatn companies and ranked on the data they provided in their applications.

Statistics reported are aggregated based on the data from the 10 winning nonprofit companies.

Winners were selected based on these applications and are being announced in the February/March 2012 issues of Working Mother and at workingmother.com.
