Although revenue (or operating budget) will remain an essential component of the Top 100 list, the magazine and institute will also consider workplace and board diversity, innovation, and the number of full-time employees. Organizations are being asked to take the survey to be considered for the list. Unlike previous years, revenue or budget figures will not be published. To submit a survey for your company, visit the Commonwealth Institute website at The deadline is May 30.

There are nearly 200,000 women-owned companies in Massachusetts. The institute is focused on helping women-led businesses become and stay successful.
