Nandini Sukumar, Chief Executive Officer of the WFE said: ‘The women on this list are all people of substance. Most have not taken linear paths to their current success nor do they come from the same background. What they all have in common is ability, the capacity for hard work, perseverance, the fortitude to overcome challenges and the skill to bind people together to strive towards a common purpose. This in essence is leadership.’’
The WFE also thanks the 6 members of the Selection Committee who are themselves exceptional industry leaders.
