Women in business: biggest companies owned or managed by women

Is there still a glass ceiling? Unhappily, yes. But there are a few cracks, and a few luminaries are excellent examples that show it isn't just a boys' game.

Business in Vancouver has published their Biggest B.C. Organizations Managed by Women and Biggest B.C. Businesses Owned by Women lists on September 6. They're ranked by total number of staff in B.C. You need to be a subscriber to see them. I won't provide the link here since the address will change, but you can search their site.

Info on South of the Fraser River: Surrey, Delta, White Rock, City of Langley, Township of Langley, Fort Langley. Maybe a bit of Abbotsford, just for fun.

This site is experimental. See About (top right) for more, or Blog for meta-information. The working goal is to create an almanac of items, tidbits of information and methods of gathering information.

Right now the site is biased to just south of the Fraser River, within the northern reaches of great City of Surrey, but there is some foraging further afield.
