*The S&P 500, published by Dow Jones, is not a static list. Catalyst accesses the list annually to create our CEO list and adds updates throughout the year when possible. Women are counted in our list starting on the date they officially take their positions. We strive to keep this CEO list accurate and timely; if you have found that we have missed something, or have any questions, please submit that information here: http://www.catalyst.org/what-we-do/services/ask-catalyst.

You can learn more about our methodology and the information used to create this List and our Pyramid here.

Catalyst also maintains an historical list of women CEOs that have appeared on the Fortune list from 1972-2018. If you would like a copy of the list, please submit a request here: http://www.catalyst.org/what-we-do/services/ask-catalyst.
