Magellan Diagnostics Named as one of the Top 100 Women-Led Business in Massachusetts
Billerica, Massachusetts – October 27, 2014 – The Boston Globe Magazine, together with its partner The Commonwealth Institute (TCI), has named Magellan Diagnostics as one of the Top 100 Women-Led Businesses in Massachusetts. Magellan’s President Amy Winslow was recognized at a breakfast event at the Seaport Boston Hotel last Friday. The full list was published in the Globe Magazine’s Women & Power Issue
on October 24 and in print on October 26.
“This year’s list includes female leaders from virtually all sectors, including healthcare, energy, technology, finance, education, and retail,” said Globe Magazine Editor Susanne Althoff. “It’s a testament to the diversity of industry and opportunity that exists in Massachusetts and also to the heights to which women can ascend.”
For the past 13 years, TCI has compiled the list to highlight the achievements of Massachusetts women. This marks the second year of its partnership with the Globe Magazine, and represents a more holistic approach to creating the list. This year’s list includes nonprofits as well as for-profit organizations, and incorporates new ranking data. Although revenue or operating budget is still an essential component, workplace and management diversity, innovation and number of full-time employees also played a part in the rankings.
“It’s no surprise to us that women are the fuel helping drive the economic engine in Massachusetts,” said Aileen Gorman, executive director of TCI. “There is no sector where women leaders are not represented; we and the Boston Globe Magazine are excited to celebrate this, and we hope this also inspires other women to strive for leadership positions in our region.”
