The 2022 Break the ceiling touch the sky® 101 Best Global CEOs for women in leadership recognizes the 101 CEOs from the world’s 500 Largest Companies that have the most gender diverse executive management teams in 2022. This inaugural listing of the world’s Best Global CEOs for women in leadership is a part of the 2022 Break the ceiling touch the sky® 101 Best Global Companies for women in leadership Index (BTC 101 Global Index). The 2022 list is derived by reviewing gender diversity percentages on the executive management teams of the world’s 500 largest Companies (in last quarter of preceding year – viz Oct – Dec 2021) and then ranking the CEOs of the top 101 Companies with the best gender diversity on their executive teams. To complete this list, House of Rose Professional (HORP) had to review the executive teams of every single one of the world’s 500 largest Companies. Research for this was pulled from the 2022 BTC 101 Global Index which reviewed gender diversity numbers on the executive leadership teams and the Boards (over 10000 executives) of the world’s 500 largest Companies in Oct-Dec 2021.
The 2022 101 Best Global CEOs for women in leadership list supports HORP’s Mission 2029 for a Better World – which aims to shape a better world via better diversity & inclusion, better leadership and better business. The Measure for MISSION 2029 for a Better World is to quintuple the number of Female CEOs and double the number of male (advocates for diversity) CEOs in the World’s 500 largest Companies by 2029 given the reality that more women in leadership = better financial results, better employer brand and more compliant and innovative businesses. The world’s largest 500 Companies generate $31.7 trillion in revenues and are represented by 31 countries that control one-third of the world’s GDP. HORP believes that by transforming gender diversity at the top of these 500 companies first we can change the trajectory of global business for the better and influence a more sustainable, better world. It is to be noted that the smallest Company on the 500 largest Companies considered for this study has annual revenue of over 24 Billion USD in 2021. As such Companies smaller than this would NOT be eligible for consideration for the BTC 101 Global Index. By default therefore only CEOs of the world’s 500 largest Companies were considered for the 2022 101 Best Global CEOs for women in leadership list.
The BTC 101 Global Index and many other great Companies will share their best practices for diversity & inclusion, leadership and success at the 2022 World Tour of Break the ceiling touch the sky® – the success and leadership summit for women through the 2021 year starting with the 2022 North America Edition of Break the ceiling touch the sky on Feb 28, 2022. Editons of the summit will continue thereafter around the world.
