For the third year, The Commonwealth Institute South Florida and Moore Research Services, Inc. have partnered to survey women-led organizations in Florida. The survey is used to obtain information and insights to better understand how these organizations are faring compared to a year ago, what business challenges they are facing, and their outlook for the next 12 months.
In order to rank on this list, companies must have completed a survey available through TCI. The goal of the survey was to capture challenges and successes experienced by women leaders. Email invitations were sent to individuals selected by survey partners’ internal lists of providers, members and member affiliates. In addition, the survey was sent to women’s organizations and chambers of commerce throughout Florida as well as posted on social media. From these invitations, a total of 241 usable responses were obtained. In this report, we share the findings of our survey: 2014 Women-Led Business Survey Results
Listings of the Top 50 Women-Led For-Profit Organizations and the Top 10 Women-Led Not-For-Profit Organizations in Florida are included in this report. The lists, ranked by 2013 revenues, are comprised of companies in which a woman is the organization’s chairwoman of the board, CEO/President, owner and/or senior level executive. Only companies for which revenues were reported in the survey are included in the overall ranking. The respondents represent numerous industries and size of companies. These women lead in nearly every industry sector-service, engineering/construction, consulting, Not-for-Profit, advertising/marketing, healthcare, real estate, financial, manufacturing, wholesale/distribution, legal, I.T., education and retail.
