To get a sense of where women stood in leading C-Suite technology roles, WBC gathered data from both public and private companies. For public companies, data was garnered from the Fortune 500, the S&P 500 and the Russell 3000. Additional data was collected from Equilar, Deloitte, and other corporate directories and databases.
Also pinpointed for the study were private companies with at least $1 billion in revenue.
For these organizations, WBC sourced data from PrivCo, the US Government Census Bureau, Bureau of Labor Statistics, AnitaB.org, Women Impact Tech, NCWIT, and the Women Tech Network.
