Findings from the Index as well as best practices on diversity, equity and inclusion from several leading Companies are being shared today at HORP's 2021 North America (virtual) Edition of Break the ceiling touch the sky - the success and leadership summit for women.  

The Break the ceiling touch the sky® 101 Best Global Companies for women in leadership Index is the annual study for  House of Rose Professional's Mission 2029 for a Better World - the 10 year global initiative to shape a better world via quintupling the number of Female CEOs in the worlds 500 largest Companies from 14 (in 2020) to 70 in 2029 and doubling the number of male CEOs who are actively investing in gender diversity & inclusion. The Index examines the gender balance across Boards and Management teams at each Company independently and then as a composite score. Over 10000 C suite executives were reviewed on the world's 500 largest Companies (smallest Company on the 500 had an annual revenue of over 25 Billion USD) in Dec 2020. This is a fact-based computation of gender diversity at the top of the world's 500 largest Companies. A spot on the Index cannot be bought or influenced! Chief HR Officers and Diversity & Inclusion Officers of Companies appearing on the Index can get in touch with HORP at for their certificate of ranking and next steps. 

Bob McDonald, 8th Secretary, Department of Veterans Affairs and former Chairman, President and CEO of The Procter & Gamble Company and member of the Mission 2029 Global Advisory Council commented, "Gender diverse companies are financially more successful, better employers, greater innovators, and better corporate citizens. We believe that by accelerating gender diversity at the world's largest companies first through MISSION 2029 for a BETTER WORLD we can accelerate global business and influence a more sustainable, better world. I encourage Companies to join MISSION 2029 FOR A BETTER WORLD. Now more than ever before we should press forward for diversity, equity and inclusion."

Commented Julie Hamilton, Chief Commercial Officer, Diageo Plc, "The future is female. Research is indicating that women drive 70-80% of all consumer purchasing, through a combination of their buying power and influence. Given this reality, it is imperative we have more gender balanced leadership at the very top of organizations. At Diageo we believe that the fastest way to greater diversity at the top is to actively support greater opportunity for women to learn, grow and lead."

Anthony A. Rose, author of "Break the ceiling touch the sky: success secrets of the world's most inspirational women" (the book that inspired the summit) and Chairman and CEO, House of Rose Professional commented;  "Congratulations to the 2021 Break the ceiling touch the sky® 101 Best Global Companies for women in leadership.
