INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Ivy Tech Community College was named in the annual Top 100 ranking of America’s Best Employers for Women by Forbes for the second year in a row.

We have aligned our policies and procedures to support all employees, which has resulted in increased employee engagement and has allowed us to attract and retain world class talent.”
Ivy Tech was one of 35 educational institutions listed in the category and one of two that identified as a community college.
