Our sister publication, BUILDER, which is a b2b publication focusing on the construction and building industry, recently took a deeper look at women who have been successful in an industry long dominated by men. This comes at a time where gender is a hotly debated topic nationwide. For instance, Denise Scott Brown, FAIA, is the first woman to win the AIA Gold Medal within her lifetime. Even more, according to an article in The New York Times, a recently study conducted by the Peterson Institute for International Economics found that women in corporate leadership are actually tied to stronger profits.
For March, the Women’s History Month, Builder identified women leaders who either sit on the board of directors or take on organizational management responsibilities (division officers excluded) among public companies in the 2015 BUILDER Top 100 list. All of the information is aggregated from proxy filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, SEC documentation of named executive officers, and corporate governance data disclosed on company websites.
