Fortune's 500 is the list of the largest companies in the United States by revenue and is a great barometer to figure out which US based companies are the most successful. If you were to take a look list for 2021 you will notice something that has been trending this way for the past several years, the largest amount of women that lead these companies. There are more companies lead by women CEOs on this list than ever before and it is showing the progress and strives women have made over the last several decades. While there is still work to be done in this area, we want to celebrate these women in order to encourage and inspire others to reach great heights.
In honor of Women's History Month and International Women's Day, we have compiled information on each of these CEO's and created small bios to illustrate their journeys and the impact they have on their companies and industries.
Below each picture will have the companies Fortune 500 rank - CEO's name - company in addition to the bios.
