The ranks of female chief executives remain thin—with women in the top spot at just 35 Fortune 1000 companies.
In this article by Joann Lublin and Kelly Eggers, 10 female executives are profiled – women whose operational expertise and track record make them likely picks to lead a Fortune 1000 company within five years. The lineup was compiled from an informal Wall Street Journal poll of 15 U.S. search firms, executive coaches and women's organizations. Human Capital News, a newswire owned by market research firm HSZ Media, also surveyed 75 human-resources executives for the Journal.
In the video, Ms Eggers talks about the selections.
