The Fortune 500 companies is a list compiled by Fortune magazine, to showcase the top 500 American companies, in terms of their respective revenues. Women leadership has been on the rise in this century, thanks to the demand for diversity and equal opportunities for both the genders.

It is expected that this figure will increase by the addition of Fraser, who is expected to step up as the CEO of Citibank, a major US bank, ultimately setting all records of being the first woman to do so, somewhere in February 2021. The infographic below features a few other Fortune 500 companies, the CEOs of which are women.
