Male-dominated workplaces that work for women - the good, the better and the best

I'm wondering about what measures can be taken to increase gender diversity in male-dominated workplaces. For women who work in male-dominated fields - how did your company's culture contribute to creating an appealing work environment for you? What can be done to build and foster this kind of culture?

I work in the tech industry, and throughout my career, most teams I've worked on have been predominantly or all male. I am really curious as to the experiences of other women who work in this or other male-dominated fields (ie engineering, finance, and construction).
How has your company culture shaped your experiences? What aspects of your company's culture make it a more appealing place to work and help you to achieve success as a woman? For example, this could include things like communication style, organizational structure, social events, customs, etc.
I'm very interested in hearing your thoughts on this matter. Thanks in advance for your responses!
