The annual Top Companies list this year highlights a record number of employers. A division of Working Mother Media, NAFE expanded the 2018 rankings from 60 to 70 in response to an influx of submissions.

Women sit at the helm of 14% of the top companies, and 69% of the CEOs have made managers’ compensation commensurate with the progress of women workers. Ten of the organization’s C-suites and five of the boards are at least 50% female, and promotions for women at all levels grew from 44% in 2017 to 46% this year.

On the other hand, just 36% of women were among the top 10% earners in 2018, down from 41% in 2017. Similarly, the percentage of female executives leading divisions worth more than $1 billion dropped from 27% to 21%.
