The Fort Worth Chamber of Commerce announced three winners of its Best Workplaces for Women Awards May 15. Recipients of the Best Workplaces for Women Awards for 2013 are:

Small Business – (1-50 employees) J. Taylor & Associates LLC, a professional service firm that provides accounting, assurance, consulting, valuation and tax-related services.

Medium Business – (50-200 employees) Hartman Leito (Lee-toh) & Bolt, LLP, a full service regional public accounting and consulting firm just acquired by BDO on May 12.

Large Business – (200+ employees) Baylor All Saints Medical Center at Fort Worth, a 525-bed full service hospital with a women’s hospital.

Presented bi-annually, the awards are part of the Chamber’s Women Influencing Business (WIB) program. The award was developed in 2011 to recognize best practices by local businesses in recruiting and retaining women employees. “Companies are competing every day on the basis of their workforce, and this award recognizes the most original and effective approaches for advancing female talent,” said Marilyn Gilbert, executive vice president of marketing, Fort Worth Chamber. “From on-site child care and domestic violence assistance to management pathways and equal pay policies, these employers are serious about recruiting and rewarding women team members.” Guest speaker at the luncheon was Lorraine Martin, executive vice president and general manager of the F-35 Lightning II Program at Lockheed Martin.
