Wentworth Among Top 100 Women-Led Businesses in Massachusetts
August 7, 2018
Wentworth Institute of Technology—under President Zorica Pantić—has been named one of the Top 100 Women-Led Businesses for 2018 by The Commonwealth Institute (TCI) and The Boston Globe Magazine.
To create its Top-100 list, TCI considers revenue or operating budget and other factors, including the numbers of full-time employees in the state, workplace and management diversity, and innovative projects. TCI then ranks organizations according to its own formula, considering nonprofit and for-profit organizations.
This is the 17th year that The Commonwealth Institute, a local nonprofit that supports female business leaders, has created the list, and the sixth year that the Globe Magazine has partnered with the group.
TCI, devoted to advancing the success of businesswomen in Massachusetts, is celebrating its 21st anniversary in 2018. TCI launched its Top 100 Women-Led Businesses in Massachusetts awards in 2000.
The Top 100 rankings will be announced at an October 26 breakfast celebration at the Marriott Copley Hotel in Boston. More than 600 business men and women are expected to attend.
The full list will be published in October in the Women and Power edition of the Globe Magazine.
