The Boston Globe Magazine’s annual list of top 100 women-led businesses in Massachusetts honors successful organizations that are led by women. At least five MIT alumnae were named to the 2017 Women & Power list.

The 16th annual Globe list, created in partnership with the Commonwealth Institute, uses a formula that judges companies based on variables like revenue or operating budget, number of full-time employees, workplace and management diversity, and innovative projects.

See which MIT alumnae made the list below and then learn about some of the alumnae through stories by MIT communications. View the full Women & Power list in the Boston Globe Magazine.
