American Institutes for Research Named to Seramount’s 2024 Best Companies for Multicultural Women

The American Institutes for Research (AIR) has been named to Seramount’s “Best Companies for Multicultural Women” list, which recognizes employers that are championing policies and programs that foster career advancement for women of diverse backgrounds. This is the fourth year AIR has earned the designation, reflecting the institution’s commitment to cultivating an inclusive workforce.

For more than 20 years, Seramount has assessed companies’ career advancement opportunities for women of color and identified organizations that are providing mentorship and sponsorship for historically underrepresented groups across the U.S. This year, AIR ranks at 41, up from 77 in 2023.

AIR’s growth and progress within the past year includes greater representation of women in senior leadership roles and strengthening of recruitment and retention initiatives focused on gender equity. AIR’s women-focused employee resource group, Women in Support of Equity (WISE), continues to play an integral role in ensuring the institution remains committed to tenants of diversity, equity, and inclusion, and providing internal and external networking opportunities for women across all levels. This year’s honor builds upon other DEI-related awards, including Diversity MBA’s Best Places to Work for Women and Diverse Managers and the Disability:IN’s Best Places to Work for People with Disabilities.

As honorees AIR is in the company of other distinguished organizations, including the American Red Cross, Johnson & Johnson, Merk, and Seattle Children's Hospital. Organizations participated in a rigorous, 545-question survey with a focus on recruitment and retention, equity in pay, and mentoring and sponsorship programs at all staff levels.
