At No. 26, SAP is applauded in the ranking for its effort to include women in the tech workforce. The company plans to have 28 percent of its leadership positions filled by women before 2020, and 30 percent by 2022.
After they successfully met their previous goal of 25 percent by 2017, potential employees have been taking note. The company employs 22,000 people in the U.S., with most new hires working in sales, IT, and engineering.

The top five companies in the ranking are Alphabet, Facebook, Amazon, Salesforce and Deloitte.
