WASHINGTON, D.C., June 22, 2021 – Evolent Health, Inc. (NYSE: EVH), a health care company that delivers proven clinical and administrative solutions to payers and providers, has been named to the Parity.org Best Companies for Women to Advance List 2021. This list recognizes organizations that have implemented a mix of exemplary benefits, policies and programs that ensure women have significant opportunities to advance their careers.
Companies on the list were rated in areas of recruitment, benefits, executive preparation, measurement and representation. These companies have made a significant commitment to the advancement of women.
“We are honored to be included for the second year in a row on Parity.org’s list of Best Companies for Women to Advance,” said Evolent Health Chief Talent Officer Michelle Engel. “Fostering inclusion is one of our core values at Evolent, and we are committed to living that value every day through our work with one another and with our partners.

We look forward to continuing to ensure equity for the women of Evolent who contribute so much to our company’s mission and success.”
Companies on the 2021 list share many common best practices that are known to support women, such as work-from-home or telecommute options (97%), flexible working hours (94%), and equal paid family leave for men and women (88%). Nearly every company measures and reports on gender parity to the executive team (97%), and every single company regularly communicates their gender-parity values to employees, encourages men to take their full family leave and has a zero-tolerance policy for harassment.
“After a year that has erased all the gains women have made in the past several decades, there are still companies that are making progress to support women’s advancement at work—all the more reason to celebrate their successes,” said Parity.org founder and CEO Cathrin Stickney. “The companies that are on the 2021 list of Best Companies for Women to Advance are shining examples of companies that actually walk the talk and are helping create equal representation, now.”
