Best Companies for Women 2020

Data Bird Business Journal shares its list of the 10 best companies for women in 2020, according to employees.  Optima is thrilled to be listed at #3.


The ranking is based on what employees themselves reported in our anonymous Employee Survey about their workplace.

The goal of the survey was to see what obstacles employees face, which diversity interventions are used at their workplace, and which they find most effective for women.

These responses were reviewed for potential gender gaps. So if women, for example, rated an organization poorly on diversity, but non-minority groups rated it highly, we adjusted the company’s score accordingly.

Jennifer won the top 40 under 40 business leaders in San Diego (SD) County award in 2018, was named 2017 Young Entrepreneur by SDs Chamber of Commerce and most influential leader in 2016 by the Connected Women of Influence.
