Randolph, Mass. – May Institute, a national nonprofit provider of services across the lifespan for individuals with autism spectrum disorder and other special needs, has been named number 31 on The Women’s Edge 2022 list of Top 100 Women-Led Businesses in Massachusetts, up from number 35 in 2021.

This is the seventh year May Institute has been selected for inclusion on the list.

The Top 100 list is ranked through an algorithm that factors in revenue, workplace diversity, innovation, and customer benefits.

“Ranking in the top third of this impressive list is a great honor that I am so proud to share with the employees of May Institute who made it possible,” said Lauren C. Solotar, PhD., ABPP, President and CEO of May Institute. “Through the years, May Institute has become a more diverse, inclusive, and innovative organization that continues to maintain an unwavering commitment to improving the lives of the individuals we serve.”
