Industries with the Most Female CEO's

According to a recent ZoomInfo Insight Report titled, Gender in the Executive Suite, women have the most significant numbers as CEOs in non-profit and healthcare industries, and as partners in law firms and legal services, representing 29.6%, 22.1% and 17.7% of the executives profiled respectively.

Bad news, however, for females in the semiconductor industry who possess CEO aspirations -- this industry has the lowest percentage of female CEOs, coming in at just over 3% of that industry's CEO population.

Advice for the up 'n comers who have their sights set on becoming CEO:

choose your industry wisely.
