Ford Motor Company Joy Falotico, Group Vice President, Chairman and Chief Executive Of- ficer, Ford Motor Credit Company Felicia Fields, Group Vice President, Human Resources and Corporate Services We performed this research in July to prepare the publication for September. We recognize that there may have been changes in employment in the intervening months. Many websites don't include photographs of executives, so if we skipped over a woman named John (or included a boy named Sue), that is why. We list the executives in the order they appear on the site and exactly as formatted, so a CEO may be listed last if her name starts with Z and her company chose to alphabetize the list. We discovered that com- panies had different ways of defining their leadership teams. Some called them Executive Team, others Corporate Of- ficers, along with many more categories. When a company listed multiple categories, we made our best educated guess which list best defined the top leadership team. We also did not list anyone who serves on a company's board (unless they have another leadership role as well). While most companies list their executive teams on their website, some do not, so we used secondary sources. Those are marked with an asterisk. The DW list is in the same order as the Fortune 500 list (US companies, by revenue). We listed all companies, even if they did not have women on their website's leadership page. We knew, given the volume of data, a few errors might sneak in, but felt it was impor- tant to spotlight the accom- plishments of these women who, despite pushback, found a place for themselves at the highest levels of corporate governance. Well done! elcome to Diversity Woman's first-ever directory of women in the top tiers of corporate leadership. Each of these women has achieved a rare seat at the executive management table, and we applaud her persistence and hard work. Our directory comprises women who work at Fortune 500 companies, accord- ing to the 2017 list. It may be exhilarating to leaf through these pages full of women's names, but it's also sobering to know that a very small percentage of women work at this level. According to a July 21, 2017, article in the New York Times, "glacial pace" describes the progress of women serving in these roles. Moreover, Fortune magazine, the source of the annual list of top 500 revenue-producing companies, reported last year that a female CEO heads only 4 percent of those companies. We hope this direc- tory will accomplish two things: celebrate the women who show up on it, and start a discussion about how to combat the endemic and often subtle sexism that still holds women back. We hope that many more names (and diverse names) will be on our Most Powerful Women in Corporate America directory next year. Many organizations and campaigns—such as CEO Action for Diversity and Inclusion and Paradigms for Parity—are actively working to increase the number of women and diverse women in leadership positions.
