10 Women Ready for the World

In Uncategorized on March 31, 2012 by RWHRMA Tagged: , ,

For the first time, Forbes’ list of the World’s Most Powerful Women is dominated by women who control the bottom line.  In short, the top 10 women in 2012 rival the top 10 men. 

Gone from this high ground are the women who snag headlines and dominate the world stage based on an ability to turn heads, initiate fashion frenzies or inspire awe based on their use of inherited wealth. This top 10 is so solid that I had no desire to look at the bottom 90.  Gaga, Oprah and British royalty fans will need to retreat to the pages of People Magazine and Vanity Fair to find out what they’ve been up to. 

Most important, the list is rich in diversity of ethnicity, race, social economic origins, professional career paths and education.  Get to know these women, they’re here to stay as the decisions they make will influence world peace, economic stability, human health and growth for decades to come!
