HOW WE CREATED THIS LIST
We looked at revenue or operating budget and other variables, including number of full-time employees in the state, workplace and management diversity, and innovative projects. We then ranked organizations according to our own formula. We considered both for-profit and nonprofit organizations. This is the 14th year that the Commonwealth Institute — a local nonprofit that supports female business leaders — has created the list, and the third year that the Globe Magazine has partnered with the group.
Note: Leaders in this list were in place at the end of 2014 (the year for which we examined revenue and other data) and a few are no longer at the businesses.
