Northbrook-based Allstate Insurance and Oak Brook-based McDonald's are two of the best companies for multicultural women, according to Working Mother magazine.

The magazine named 23 companies it says lead by example with initiatives that hold managers accountable for recruiting, retaining and promoting multicultural women.

State Farm Insurance in downstate Bloomington is also on the list. For the first time ever, Cincinnati-based Macy's is also on the list. The magazine notes that Macy's helps multicultural women climb the corporate ladder by offering training, mentoring and career counseling.
