Annual award highlights women business leaders who are making a significant impact on the state’s economy
Boston (November 5, 2021) – The Commonwealth Institute (TCI), together with its partner The Boston Globe, today announced Lowell Community Health Center was a part of the 21st annual Top 100 Women-Led Businesses in Massachusetts list, recognizing the honorees during a virtual event. These 100 organizations generated nearly $67 billion in total revenue in 2020, demonstrating that women are key drivers of the state’s economy.
“We are honored to once again be recognized as one of the Commonwealth’s top Women Lead Businesses. We are in such great company with two other local, Lowell organizations, UMass Lowell and D’Youville Life & Wellness Community,” said Susan West Levine, CEO of Lowell Community Health Center. “This recognition reflects the tremendous hard work, and dedication to our community and patients shown by all staff of our health center. Their impact during this pandemic has been immeasurable.”
“The organizations on this year’s diverse list are driving innovation across the country, from increased manufacturing capacity to breakthroughs in clinical care and therapeutics” said TCI Chief Executive Officer Elizabeth L. Hailer. “We are honored to celebrate the Top 100 women leaders and hopes it inspires others to drive for success here in our region and beyond.”
This is the 21st year that TCI – a Boston-based nonprofit organization devoted to advancing women in leadership positions — created the list through a nomination process and reviewed both for-profit and not-for-profit organizations, and the 9th year that the list was created in collaboration with the Boston Globe Magazine. In addition to revenue or operating budget, factors considered in the evaluation included workplace and management diversity, board makeup, and innovative projects. The full list will be published in the Globe Magazine’s Women & Power issue at bostonglobe.com/magazine on November 5 and in print on November 7.
“We’re proud to once again partner with TCI to recognize these 100 remarkable companies—and the remarkable women who lead them,” said Globe Magazine editor Francis Storrs. “It’s a privilege to celebrate this year’s honorees for all they’ve accomplished, and for the example they’re setting for future generations of leaders.”
