Female CEOs in the Fortune 500 aren’t quite the norm yet, but they have been making strides.

As of May 2018, there are 24 female CEOs on the list—or just under 5% of the total list. The women run a diverse range of companies—from consumer goods behemoths like PepsiCo to defense contractors like Lockheed Martin—but they are, predominantly, white. At the moment, just two names on the list are women of color: Geisha Williams of PG&E Corporation (pcg) and Indra Nooyi of PepsiCo (pep). None are African American.

All Fortune 500 rankings are as of June 2017.
