Geeta Aiyer Featured in Boston Globe Magazine’s Women & Power Issue

BOSTON, MA – Boston Common Asset Management was honored for the second, consecutive year as one of the Top 100 Women-led Businesses in Massachusetts. The Commonwealth Institute and the Boston Globe Magazine partnered to recognize women-led organizations that excel in innovation and have strong records of workplace and management diversity, in addition to revenue.

The Top 100 list represents revenue of over $73 billion and 16% of GDP in Massachusetts in 2013.

Geeta Aiyer, President and Founder of Boston Common Asset Management, was featured in the Boston Globe Magazine’s article in its Women & Power issue on Sunday.

“One day, women leaders will simply be Leaders,” said Aiyer, “and Leadership will be a composite of the many strengths that women and men bring. I am honored to be in the company of so many great Leaders.”

Boston Common assesses companies holistically by integrating traditional financial analysis with Environmental, Social, and Governance research. Building broader board diversity alongside the 30 Percent Coalition is among the firm’s many shareowner engagement initiatives.
