The 2012 Top 50 Companies for Executive Women list has been released. Compiled by the National Association for Female Executives (NAFE), the survey evaluates companies on every aspect of women’s advancement, including succession planning, profit-and-loss roles, gender pay parity, support programs, work/life balance programs and more.
The annual list credits organizations that serve as champions for women in the workplace, with specific emphasis on the number of women at the highest ranks and those with jobs with profit-and-loss responsibility. It also measures women’s representation in the highest-paid and top-tier positions at America’s largest companies.
To be considered, companies must have a minimum of two women on their board of directors as well as at least 500 employees in the U.S.
The full ranking is available from the NAFE website.
