In Forbes' annual survey, Carnival Corporation was ranked the No. 9 employer in the travel and leisure industry, and was the only cruise-specific company to be recognized among the 300 top companies employing at least 1,000 people in their US operations.

The exclusive listing of America's Best Employers for Women was determined through an independent survey of more than 75,000 US employees, including 45,000 women, working for companies with at least 1,000 employees in their US operations.

Of the thousands of companies considered for the recognition, only 300 were awarded, based on participant assessments in categories including discrimination, family support, flexibility, parental leave, pay equity, and representation and career.

As part of the company's overall commitment to advancing diversity in the workplace, Carnival also continues to work with Catalyst, a leading US nonprofit with a mission to expand opportunities for women.

In November 2019, the company supported Catalyst's "Now Is the Moment—Be a Catalyst" campaign to advance women's leadership in the global workforce.

As a company, we fully embrace the importance of the power of diversity and inclusion in driving innovation and performance,

Carnival operates nine cruise line brands, including Carnival Cruise Line, Holland America Line and Princess Cruises.
