Top 100 Women Led Businesses in MA Survey 2015


Again this year, we are taking a more holistic approach to create our Top 100 Women-Led Businesses list. We are including both for-profit and non-profit organizations. Although revenue remains an essential component, we are also weighing workplace and board diversity, innovation, and the number of full-time (FTE) employees. Revenue (or non-profit operating revenue) will not be published. We ask that organizations take this survey to be considered for the Top 100 list. Results will appear in the October 25 issue of The Boston Globe Magazine. Thank you.

The deadline for submission is May 29, 2015.

The following information will be requested in the survey. The survey should take about 15 minutes.
