Company rankings are based on the responses from employees, public opinion and an overall leadership score - awarded based on the share of the Board of Directors and executive leadership positions held by women. Statista also asked participants to rate companies on criteria such as pay equity and paternal leave and how companies are using their platforms to promote gender equality.
