Diversity Woman Media's 2024 Elite 100 Special Winter Issue

Diversity Woman’s ELITE 100 Class of 2024 highlights Black women in the C-suite and executive leaders—at Fortune 500, Fortune 1000, Fortune Global 500, S&P 500 companies, and nonprofits.  These impressive women are leading complex transformations in their corporations by managing remote teams around the world, building morale through innovative programming, optimizing organizational culture through diversity, equity, and inclusion, and sustaining profitable bottom lines.  In fields from finance and tech to entertainment and health care, these corporate superstars are making their mark. 

“I am thrilled to celebrate the inspiring Black women featured in our Elite 100 Class of 2024 issue,” said Dr. Sheila Robinson, founder of Diversity Woman Media.  “These impressive women are serving as a guiding light for generations to come. They are not only worthy of honoring, but they also represent something significant—for years, companies have been saying that they cannot find qualified Black women executives for the corner office and boardrooms. This list—along with the 100 other women in 2021, 2022 and 2023—proves otherwise.

Despite the progress made, black women still encounter persistent obstacles to career advancement, including double standards, insufficient advocacy, and unconscious bias. We still have a long way to go to reach true equity in the workplace. We encourage companies to follow the lead of the companies here, in intensifying their efforts in recruiting and promoting more black women to executive leadership and board positions.”
