The National Association for Female Executives recently compiled a list of the top 50 companies for executive women, and two New Jersey-based companies have earned spots in the rankings.
Johnson & Johnson and Prudential Financial both landed on the list compiled by NAFE, one of the largest association's for professional women in the country and a division of Working Mother Media.
At the New Brunswick-based Johnson & Johnson, 47 percent of the total employees and 29 percent of senior managers are women.
At Prudential Financial, based out of Newark, 51 percent of the total employees and 33 percent of senior managers are women.
At both companies, women comprise 23 percent of their corporate boards.
To be eligible for the ranking, companies had to submit an application that included some 200 questions about female representation within the organization.
"This application is designed to identify companies where women have significant clout, making the decisions that affect their company's future and its bottom line," NAFE stated in the report's executive summary. "We look for women who lead businesses, set policy and have profit-and-loss responsibility. We also track what companies are doing to help advance women and the impact of their programs."
Companies also had to have a minimum of two women on their corporate boards and at least 1,000 employees.
Several other companies with locations in New Jersey earned spots on the list of top 50 companies for women, including Accenture, Aetna, American Express, AON, AT&T, Bank of America, Bristol-Myers Squibb Co., Colgate-Palmolive, DuPont, Ernst & Young, Grant Thornton LLP, KPMG, Kraft and Pfizer.
