Dana-Farber Cancer Institute at the top of the 2022 Top 100 Women-Led Businesses in Massachusetts

Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Laurie H. Glimcher, MD, president and CEO, are No. 1 on the 2022 Top 100 Women-Led Businesses in Massachusetts.  The list is compiled annually by The Women’s Edge (formerly The Commonwealth Institute) and Globe Magazine to celebrate the state’s leading companies and nonprofits run by women. The list was featured in the Globe Magazine on October 30, 2022

The Boston Globe and The Women’s Edge partner to name the most noteworthy companies and nonprofits helmed by women.  This annual list includes leaders of health care companies, retail giants, construction heavyweights, financial institutions, nonprofits, and many more. The organizations featured on the list are responsible for thousands of employees and billions in revenue, the women leaders are notable for helping drive the Massachusetts economy. Taken together, the 100 companies on this list represent a total revenue and operating budget of $75.9 billion.

For each organization, The Women’s Edge, a nonprofit that supports female business leaders, examined revenue or operating budget as well as other variables, including number of full-time employees in the state, workplace and management diversity, and innovative projects. The Women’s Edge then ranked organizations according to its own formula.

This is the 22nd year that The Women’s Edge has created the list and the 10th year that the Globe Magazine has partnered with the group.
