Every self-respecting firm is trying to improve the gender balance in their organization. Managers are now realizing that diversity can truly improve the quality of the decision at every level in firms. Of course the more immediate reason for the push for diversity is the scorn with which society is now beginning to view organizations that don’t seem to be making an effort.

The rising tide of women in positions of influence is altering the landscape at private sector firms, start-ups and in government. An increasing number of women are founders, leaders and strategic managers at enterprises around the country. They are inspiring the next generation of leaders, bringing diversity of opinion, new perspectives and quickly becoming the central pivot of social good at firms. What better way to celebrate the mass arrival of women at workplaces and the impact they are having on business than to recognise the most influential among them in Echelon’s ranking?

These women, in the first ranking of its kind here, are shaping the future of emerging industries like design and technology as well as established ones like finance and marketing. Some of them wield significant influence in government, the economy, markets and public policy.
