GEICO named a Top 5 Company for women in IT

WASHINGTON, Sept. 21, 2018 GEICO is among the Top 5 Companies for Women Technologists, recognized by AnitaB.org, a global nonprofit agency that recognizes companies building workplaces where women can thrive.

Using a rigorous methodology that looks at representation, employee experience, programs and policies, AnitaB.org analyzed data from 80 companies. The five companies with the highest cumulative scores in their respective workforce size categories earned placement on the 2018 Top Companies for Women Technologists Top 5 lists. GEICO was recognized for companies with a technical workforce of between 1,000 and 10,000 employees.

Marie Motowylak, GEICO's director of decision sciences and business transformation, said GEICO is both appreciative and motivated by the recognition.

"We are very proud of the efforts we have made to develop an inclusive environment with a keen focus on training, career-advancement and promotional opportunities for women into leadership roles," she said. "More and more women are taking advantage of the many IT career opportunities at GEICO, and we will continue to create rewarding career paths for them."

Even before this latest recognition, GEICO's efforts to support women in IT had not gone unnoticed. Earlier this year, two of the company's IT associates were recognized by the Washington, D.C.-based nonprofit Women in Technology, and last year, GEICO was the winner of AnitaB.org's coveted Top Companies for Women Technologists award.

"IT at GEICO plays a central role in creating seamless, innovative and dynamic insurance experiences for our customers. The inclusiveness and the diversity of our team of technologists drives our innovation and makes us a stronger and better company," said GEICO Executive Vice President and CIO Greg Kalinsky.
