The Peak Power List 2021
In 1949, Mao Zedong once famously said that women hold up half the sky. Since then, progress in the gender equality sphere has been marching forward with the occasional sputtering and odd step backwards, but never back to the starting line. The way ahead is still long and arduous, but nothing worth doing is ever easy. The Peak Power List 2021 honours 10 women pushing the boundaries in their respective fields.
The Peak Power List recognises movers and shakers in a specific area. In 2018, it highlighted industry leaders championing green causes while 2020 turned the spotlight on champions in corporate sustainability. This year – the seventh edition of the Power List – we honour the following women who have been fearless about pushing the limits of gender equality and equity in their respective fields.
These are their stories.
