Inspiring Women In Leadership
How do inspiring stories elevate women of the future and help them raise the bar?
#EveryWomanIsALeader in her own way. It is important for her to realize her worth. And there are so many inspiring women out there, who would make you feel like, get up and do something, you too can!
For me, these are a few examples of inspiring women who are the most amazing leaders..
1. Indra Nooyi
Well, who else would be the most inspiring woman in the world for all of us?! Indra Krishnamurthy Nooyi, business executive and the current Chairperson and Chief Executive Officer of PepsiCo, the second largest food and beverage business in the world.She has consistently ranked among the World’s 100 Most Powerful Women. In 2014, she was ranked 13 in the list of Forbes World’s 100 most powerful women.
2. Kiran Mazumdar Shaw
Kiran Mazumdar Shaw, the founder Chairman and Managing Director (CMD) of Biocon Limited. She started Biocon in 1978 and today under Shaw’s leadership, Biocon has established itself as a leading player in biomedicine research with focus on diabetes and oncology.
3. Chanda Kochhar
She is the MD & CEO of India’s largest private bank ICICI Bank, Being a Chartered Accountant, I always admired her the most and still do!
4. Saina Nehwal
Coming to sports, Saina is currently ranked No. 2 in the world by Badminton World Federation.She is also the first Indian after Prakash Padukone and the first Indian woman to become world number 1. She also recently won the India Open Super Series Title.
5. Mary Kom
Mar Kom is a five-time World Amateur Boxing champion, and the only woman boxer to have won a medal in each one of the six world championships.She became the first Indian woman boxer to get a Gold Medal in the Asian Games in 2014.
6. Tarla Dalal
Coming to other fields now, I used to really follow,respect and admire Tarla Dalal. She was the only woman in the field when there were others like Sanjeev Kapoor. She wrote over 100 books and sold more than 3 million books. She also ran the largest Indian food web site, and published a bi-monthly magazine, Cooking & More. It is sad that she is no more.
7. Ekta Kapoor
She is the most successful female producer in the entertainment industry. Though her work is not something we love or applaud, but she knows her business well and has been super successful till date.
And there are many many more, these were just a few examples. It is not ‘luck’ that played a part in their lives always. Each and every successful women leader out there, has an inspiring story. Struggles have been a part of everyone’s lives and it was not all hunky dory for them. Neither did they achieve all this in a day! Hard work and sheer perseverance have made them reach where they are.
So, pick your leader, be inspired and remember ‘You Too Can’!
