House Of Rose Professional Announces 101 Best Global Companies For Women In Leadership

House of Rose Professional recently announced the 2023 Break the Ceiling Touch the Sky 101 Best Global Companies for women in leadership Index (BTC 101 Global Index). The Index is based on a review by HORP of gender diversity on the Boards and Executive Management teams (over 10000 C-Suite executives) of the world’s 500 largest companies by revenue. HORP then attributes a composite gender diversity score to each company. On the basis of these two numbers, they define the final rankings on the BTC 101 Global Index. To be eligible for consideration, companies must have over 20 percent of women on their Board. Additionally, over 20 percent of women must be on their executive leadership team independently.

Highlights of the BTC 101 Global Index

  • Bristol-Myers Squibb leads with a composite gender diversity score of 50 percent. This score is followed closely by Mercadona, Walt Disney, Engie, BP, SNCF, Deutsche Telekom, Starbucks and Coca-Cola. Each of the top ten recorded composite gender diversity scores of over 46 percent. The full list on the BTC 101 Global Index and their gender diversity composite scores can be viewed at
