Top 50 Companies For Women Execs Named

TAMPA, FL -The National Association for Female Executives (NAFE) has named its Top 50 Companies and 10 Nonprofits for Executive Women.  The list recognizes organizations whose policies and practices encourage women’s advancement and whose numbers at the highest levels of leadership demonstrate that commitment.

 

This year marks an important milestone: At the 2011 NAFE Top Companies, women executives run 23 percent of operations that generate more than $1 billion in revenue. “Women have long struggled to reach the highest ranks in a male-dominated business environment, but with the growing profitability of companies with women in the top ranks, that is changing,” said Dr. Betty Spence, NAFE president. “Today, employers reward the skills that women bring and demand them of men, as well.”

 N

AFE will honor each of the Top Companies at a gala luncheon March 30 at
Cipriani 42nd Street
in New York City. Prior to the luncheon, senior women executives who have profit and loss responsibilities at the NAFE Top Companies will meet at the closed-door NAFE Roundtable to discuss critical business issues.  A report will be published in NAFE magazine.

 

Methodology: The 2011 NAFE Top Companies application includes 225 questions on such topics as female representation, hiring, attrition and promotion rates; access and usage of key retention and advancement programs such as mentoring, executive coaching, networking and sponsorship; company culture; and manager training and accountability. The application draws particular attention to the number of women at the highest ranks and those with profit-and-loss responsibility. To be considered for the NAFE Top Companies for Executive Women, companies must have a minimum of two women on their board of directors, as well as at least 500 employees in the United States.
