Forbes – Most Powerful Women


Forbes magazine has come out with its list of the Most Powerful Women and the usual suspects (Prime Ministers, Presidents, CEOs) make it to the list. Technically speaking, there is no Indian woman in the list. But, Indira Nooyi is featured as #28 in the list (she is a US citizen). Forbes has not mentioned anything about the Middle Finger controversy that Nooyi was involved in.

  • Hi kaps-tell me who should have been there from India?

  • Kaps, good one.

    Sometime back (at least 4 years or more), Indra Nooyi was first on the list. Soon afterwards, she came to Infy where she addressed Infoscions and this was discussed.

    Cheers,

  • Sorry. It was not #1.

    "PepsiCo president and CFO Indra Nooyi, who helped engineer $30 billion worth of deals in the past few years, holds the No. 4 spot, up from No. 10 last year. Pepsi's earnings per share are expected to rise 13% this year, though a newly energized Coke will pose challenges. At No. 5 is Andrea Jung (No. 4 in 2001), chairman and CEO of Avon Products."

  • @Monu,
    I guess if u r from a wealthier country you get more weightage. That's why u see a lot of Americans and Europeans in the list.

    @Anonymous,
    I don't have access the previous year ratings and hence comment on the movements.

    @Senthil,
    Even i felt so....maybe they should have named this as Most Influential Women

    @Vasanthi,
    The usual suspects from India are Sonia Gandhi, Naina Lal Kidwai (first Indian woman to pass out of Harvard Business School), Kiran Mazumdar Shaw (Biocon).

    @Chanakya,
    Thanx 4 the link, will check it out.

    @IBH,
    Please share the forward with us.

  • What an insult to Indian democracy and the CMP.. There's no Sonia Gandhi in the list!!! Now the BJP would certainly vouch that the rankings are rigged ;)
