Carnival Corporation named one of the world’s top companies for women
Carnival Corporation, the world’s largest cruise company, has been named as one of the World’s Top Companies for Women for 2023 by Forbes. This is the third consecutive year that the company has received the accolade and it was the only cruise company recognised. The Forbes list of the top 400 companies cites those who are dedicated to advancing women in the workplace.
The ranking are determined through an independent survey of approximately 70,000 women working for global companies across 37 countries. Respondents are asked whether they would recommend their employer to friends and family, and to anonymously rate their workplaces on both general workplace practices and gender-specific issues, such as gender pay equity and opportunities for advancement. Employees can also rate other companies within their respective industry and evaluate the organisations based on their public image. Based on these direct and indirect employee recommendations, along with an evaluation of women in leadership positions, the top 400 companies are recognised.
“For all of us at Carnival Corporation, we celebrate our diverse team and are committed to providing a welcoming and inclusive environment where people from different backgrounds, experiences and walks of life can succeed,” says Bettina Deynes, global chief human resources officer for Carnival Corporation. “We care deeply for our employees and are proud to be named alongside other esteemed companies that are dedicated to providing equal opportunity and a supportive workplace for all.”
Carnival Corporation says this recognition as one of the World’s Top Companies for Women builds on a series of other distinguished honours it has earned in recent years. It was named by Forbes as one of the World’s Best Employers for the third time earlier this year and was named one of the Best Companies for Latinos by Latino Leaders Magazine in 2022. It also earned a perfect score on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s 2022 Corporate Equality Index, designating the company as a Best Place to Work for LGBTQ+ Equality for the sixth consecutive year.
In May this year, the crew of cruise ship Carnival Dream helped to rescue 17 people stranded in the Belize Channel, after the group’s boat capsized. The 1000ft Carnival Dream was heading to the Mexican Caribbean resort island of Cozumel, when the ship’s officers spotted the capsized boat and its distressed passengers sitting on the upturned hull.
