Women Leaders Top 250: From Melinda Gates to Michelle Obama, These Are the Most Influential Women in the World

Top 250 Women in Leadership

Whether you’re a would-be woman-leader or have spent decades being one. You could be worse-off than to read the short biographies of female leaders who’ve been through the journey before. So we’ve compiled a list from top women leaders. 

As Seen On …

The Nation Newspaper
Stuff Co NZ logo
Fortune Turkey Richtopia

Here’s what some of them said about this list:

Our women leaders list is an automatic algorithm based on social media influence, Klout scores and a secret recipe. We take into account various metrics from Twitter, Facebook, Wikipedia, Youtube, LinkedIn and Instagram. The list gets updated each Wednesday. If you believe you fit the criteria (or you know a leader who can), you can add yourself by clicking the “join” button. All entries are considered by our admins, and Richtopia reserves the right to accept or forbid people from the list as it deems fit.

Follow these women leaders to keep up with trends. You will also learn what resources they use to stay in the know.
