The group represents the best and brightest female technology leaders from companies such as AWS, GitHub, HBO, Microsoft, Puppet, Salesforce and many more.
The Top 50 are almost exclusively C- or VP-level executives at public companies and have collectively managed 100 acquisitions worth more than $55 billion and nearly 20 Initial Public Offerings (IPOs). Their domain and ecosystem expertise span Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Open Source Software, Cybersecurity, Cloud Computing, IoT and Edge, FinTech, Consumer Tech, Streaming Media and more.
“The FirstBoard.io Top 50 showcases the best and most diverse executive-level talent in tech at exactly the time when a new level of collaboration in business and society is being called for,” said Firstboard.io Founder Rita Scroggin.
“More than 40 percent of the Top 50 are women of color and all of these leaders bring diverse experiences from around the world and from different sectors to their board positions. I believe that diversifying company boards and leadership teams will be one of the biggest transformative energies to make the world a more equal and just place,” Scroggin added.
