The number of women leading Fortune 500 companies dropped 25% from last year. There are now 24 female chiefs of America’s leading companies, down from an all-time high of 32 in 2017. More than a third of the women on last year’s list have exited; some, such as Mondelez CEO Irene Rosenfeld, have retired, while others, such as HPE’s Meg Whitman, have moved to new ventures. Most recently, Denise Morrison left her post as chief at Campbell Soup.
