The 2018 NAFE Top 70 Companies for Executive Women

At this year’s winning organizations, women increasingly are in power, making up about a third of the highest-paid workers, direct reports to the CEO, and board members. With supportive cultures that aim their leadership development, mentoring and sponsorship at women, we wanted to honor more companies than ever. Our list of 60 is now 70 long.

More About Our 2018 Top Companies for Executive Women


The 2018 NAFE Top 70 Companies application includes more than 200 questions on topics including female representation at all levels, but especially the corporate officer and profit-and-loss leadership ranks.

The application tracks and examines how many employees have access to programs and policies that promote advancement of women and how many employees take advantage of them, plus how companies train managers to help women advance.

To be considered, companies must have minimum of two women on their board of directors as well as at least 1,000 U.S. employees.

About NAFE

The National Association for Female Executives (NAFE) is one of the largest associations for women professionals and business owners in the country.

“The annual NAFE scrutiny of women’s progress at American companies provides a dependable barometer for measuring the movement of women into top leadership positions in the private sector,” says NAFE president Betty Spence. “With women at only 29 percent of boards and 30 percent of C-suite members, NAFE continues to work with our Top Companies to speed women’s headway.”
