Four large firms and two small ones top the list created by the Women's Foundation of Greater St. Louis. "Women in the Workplace: Employment Scorecard" is part of a brand-new initiative that the foundation launched last fall.

- Bryan Cave, LLP (bryancave.com)
- The Saint Louis Zoo (stlzoo.org)
- DOORWAYS (doorwayshousing.org)
- The Missouri Foundation for Health (mffh.org)
