Posted date

Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Laurie H. Glimcher, MD, president and CEO, are No. 5 on the 2023 Top 100 Women-Led Businesses in Massachusetts. The list is compiled annually by The Women’s Edge and the Globe Magazine to celebrate the state’s leading companies and nonprofits run by women. It will be published in the November 5th Women & Power issue of the Boston Globe Magazine.

“We are honored to be listed with so many other accomplished leaders in Massachusetts, and I extend my congratulations to all the tremendous women on this list,” said Laurie H. Glimcher, MD, president and CEO of Dana-Farber. “We are proud to be recognized and celebrate excellent care for our patients and innovative research that can help patients everywhere.”

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, universities and colleges, financial institutions, law firms, transportation and construction powerhouses, 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 $84 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 23rd year that The Women’s Edge has created the list and the 11th year that the Globe Magazine has partnered with the group.
