Women have done the work to earn their seats at the table, but we haven’t stopped there. Many women throughout history have continued to work hard and push themselves even further than anyone could’ve ever imagined.
Women account for only 6% of all CEO’s but that number is increasing. Here are the top women CEOs that have made a place for themselves in the business industry.
Get ready because these powerful women understand what it takes to reach the top.
Karen Lynch became the CEO of CBS Health in February of 2021. Before being promoted to her new business she worked as the executive VP for the company and was the president of Aetna.
Because CVS is ranked as one of the top providers of health in the world, she is ranked at the top of female CEOs by Fortune 500.
The next woman on our list is none other than the U.S Chamber of Commerce CEO Suzanne Clark. The chamber of commerce oversees advocating for businesses that have issues during periods of decline like what is occurring now during the pandemic.
Clark became the president of the Chamber of Commerce in June of 2019. It’s no wonder why she’s been moved into the CEO position with the management and leadership roles she’s held throughout her career.
Citigroup did well by moving Jane Fraser into the CEO position in February of 2021. She is the first woman in history to be the leader of a bank on Wall Street, a sector commonly ruled by men.
Fraser has been with Citigroup since 2004 and moved through several different managerial roles. She like many of the other women on this list has also found herself on Fortune’s Most Powerful Women’s list.

Griffith has been the CEO of Progressive since 2016. In the past, she filled positions as chief human resource officer and COO.
Due to the expert leadership provided by Griffith, she has propelled the Progressive company to the top of the list in terms of workplace diversity and inclusion.
