Just chipping in to say InHerSight is a good starting resource regarding company vetting - it ranks companies according to a variety of metrics including equal opportunities for men and women and learning opportunities. There are also company reviews which tend to focus on workplace conditions, etc.
The main downsides of using the site are that some smaller companies may not be included and it has an American slant.

I'd like to discuss the idea of having a jobs board. The board would list jobs from women friendly tech companies and generate a little cash for Arch Women. The free software foundation has something similar as an example: https://www.fsf.org/resources/jobs
I'd like to hear people's thoughts on the pros and cons for this, if its something we should look into doing and how it should be done if we decide to go that route.
I want to make sure we are vetting any companies that contact us so only high quality postings from good places are posted. Maybe with some criteria like having anti-harassment policies and being LGBTQ friendly.
I think this would be an awesome idea and resource for the community. :) My experience planning and mapping out something like this is minimal, but I'd be happy to support it any way I can.
Are there any other communities similar to Arch Women with something like this that we could maybe refer to as an example?
