On February 23, Tueth Keeney was recognized by the Women’s Foundation of Greater St. Louis (WFSTL) as a top place for women to work in the third annual “Women in the Workplace: Employment Scorecard.”
The Women in the Workplace Scorecard recognizes 17 small, medium and large companies in the St. Louis region who showed a strong commitment to women in the workplace through measurable outcomes, key policies and best practices, including demonstrating results with women in a minimum of 27 percent of top leadership roles; a minimum of 25 percent of women in the top 10 percent of the most highly compensated employees; a starting wage higher than the Missouri minimum wage; and family-friendly flexible work policies and recruitment and retention programs targeted at advancing women.
Tueth Keeney, recognized for efforts throughout 2019, has demonstrated a strong commitment to women in the workplace, and the firm’s achievements in making careers sustainable for working families are to be commended,” said Lisa Weingarth, executive director of WFSTL. “With local unemployment rates continuing to decrease, it’s more important than ever for area employers to improve their policies and practices to recruit, retain and advance women.”
Unlike most “Best Places to Work” reports that rely on employee opinion surveys, the Women in the Workplace: Employment Scorecard looked at objective criteria and outcomes. Through a blind data review process by a five-person panel, the Scorecard evaluates company employment practices and their impact on gender diversity. Designated organizational representatives were asked to answer specific questions based on existing policies, practices or employee data.
Tueth Keeney was also recognized in 2018, making this the firm’s second time year in a row of being honored with this award.

About the Women’s Foundation of Greater St. Louis: “The Women’s Foundation of Greater St. Louis (WFSTL) was founded in 2007 by a group of forward-thinking St. Louis women, led by Pat Rich. Armed with an abundance of energy and a passionate commitment to improving the lives of women in the St. Louis region, the fledgling organization initiated a grassroots effort to raise funds to launch the Women’s Foundation.
Since 2015, WFSTL has been steadily increasing its focus on efforts towards advancing economic success for women. In 2017, a listening tour was conducted that led to the prioritization of grantmaking. In 2018, a policy agenda was developed and WFSTL published the first annual Women in the Workplace: Employment Scorecard.
WFSTL’s activities have continued to develop in new and exciting ways. In addition to cause-driven giving and building relationships with our community, our mission has grown to also incorporate pursuing long-term, transformative change. We are proud to be a nexus for women’s issues in the St. Louis region as we bring together actively engaged citizens from our diverse community to improve economic success for women. The WFSTL welcomes support from anyone who is committed to removing the societal, policy and economic obstacles so that St. Louis women can achieve economic success.
The WFSTL is affiliated with the national Women’s Funding Network, a group of funding organizations who are changing communities through thoughtful charitable investment.”
