NAFE Top Companies for Women Executives – Top 10

General Mills did it again! We’re honored to make NAFE- National Association for Female Executives (NAFE) Top Companies for Women Executives for the 10th year in a row!


The National Association for Female Executives (NAFE), one of the country’s largest associations for women professionals and business owners, provides resources—through education, networking, and public advocacy—to empower its members to achieve both career and personal success. NAFE is a division of Working Mother Media.

The 2013 National Association for Female Executives (NAFE) Top Companies for Executive Women application includes more than 200 questions on female representation at all levels, but especially the corporate officer and profit-and-loss leadership ranks. The application also tracks how many employees have access to programs and policies that promote the advancement of women and how many employees take advantage of those programs and policies. The application focuses on how companies train managers to help women advance and how those managers are held accountable for the advancement of female employees that they oversee.

We invite applications from for-profit companies that have at least 1,000 U.S. employees as well as two women on their boards of directors. (Nonprofit companies are welcome to apply for a separate list; click for the 2013 NAFE Top 10 Nonprofits.) The 2013 company profiles are culled from submitted applications and reflect 2011 data.
