SGA Talent Acknowledges The Exceptional Women Leaders Who Lead The Top Diversified Companies

Every month SGA Talent releases studies and reports which are part of assignments the team has worked on in the past. This month we are preparing to release “Who’s Who Among The Top Diversified Companies.”

Retained by a well renowned global diversified organization, our team was tasked with conducting a succession planning & diversity project. Our mission was to identify leadership teams and build organization charts three levels down from each leader. Once this was completed and shared with our client, our team began gathering profiles, conducting talent comparisons and obtaining contact details of those professionals who made the list. Now in review by our client, we have been asked to begin engaging and building talent communities with the intent to fill future vacancies. With a target list of over 200 organizations, we are sharing with our readers, the companies who were part of Venture Radar‘s top list of diversified companies, focusing solely on the United States.

As we prepare for this month’s release, I wanted to first share and congratulate the outstanding women leaders from the top diversified companies listed below. Congrats to all who made the list!

Recruiting Women In Technology SGA’s 2011 Study Sneak Peek Preview

Since 1993 we have been specializing in recruiting and conducting passive executive research in the I/T World

The fact is that there are still fewer Women than men In Technology to Recruit!


Our results for just the Fortune 100 are in.  For 2011 there are 17% Women In Technology Leaders in comparison to 15% in 2004 and 12% in 2007. Finding top notch women in technology is becoming less difficult, there are just fewer out there.   No wonder why women in technology continue to encourage young women in high school and college to major in technology. These professionals are mentors and active in multiple related associations and organizations.   As most technology recruiters are aware, recruiting technology professionals can be challenging within itself and women in this space are considered “a hot commodity”.

For the next few weeks my staff and I will begin to once again analyze women in technology and release our findings to all of you and the world.  FYI it consists of 1000 Companies.  Stay tuned for the results of SGA’s Women in Technology Study.  This particular study is so much fun!
