Not even 5 percent of all Fortune 500 companies have female CEOs. Even though discussions about equal payment
and hiring seem to be slowly bearing fruit amongst America’s employers, change in leading roles seems to be long in coming when looking at top management positions. In fact, 2017 started off with 32 females occupying chief executive positions in Fortune 500
companies. Now, in May 2018, there are only 24 women left leading the biggest U.S. companies.
