Methodology: This list is based on the Fortune 1000 list of companies published by Fortune magazine in May or June of each year. The number and rank of companies remains unchanged throughout the year until a new list is published. We update our list throughout the year whenever a woman becomes CEO or departs a CEO position at any of the listed companies. Women are counted in our list starting on the date they officially take over their positions. We strive to keep this list accurate and timely; if you have found that we have missed something, or have any questions, please email us at [email protected].

Catalyst also maintains an historical list of women CEOs that have appeared on the Fortune list from 1972-present. If you would like a copy of the list, email [email protected]
