“On my own I will just create, and if it works, it works, and if it doesn’t, I’ll create something else. I don’t have any limitations on what I think I could do or be.”, these words by Oprah stand true for each and every woman out there. In a man’s world, there is nothing more empowering than a woman at a high position that would traditionally be owned by a man. Gone are the days when women were believed to handle house and babies. New-age women are breaking all the barriers, leaving behind all the comfort zones and are setting new bench marks for others to follow. Today, while men might be positioned at all high ranks across the world, it is the women in their high heels who are efficiently running the world.
In a male dominated industry, the sorry state of women is coming to an end now. The recent years have seen many ambitious women stepping up to pursue their passion, not just as an entrepreneur but also across various other domains. As the famous inventor, entrepreneur and television personality, Lori Greiner said, “Dear optimist, pessimist, and realist – while you guys were busy arguing about the glass of wine, I drank it! Sincerely, the Opportunist!” Today’s women are making the best use of the available opportunities to leverage their growth options. From Arundhati Bhattacharya as the Chairperson of State Bank of India, Kiran Mazumdar-Shaw as Founder of Biocon to Indra Nooyi being President of PepsiCo and Lt. Sushma Swaraj who was a renowned Minister of External Affairs, the women of India are leaving no area untouched when it comes to holding leadership chairs.
Demanding nothing less than the status of equality in this male-dominated world, women are determined to be heard across the globe and they are leaving no stone unturned to make this happen. With the aim of recognizing some of the leading women leaders in the consulting industry, we at Consultants Review have put together a list of ’10 Most Promising Women Consultants - 2021’. This issue celebrates the success of not just women leaders in consulting industry but also other women who are setting a niche with their achievements and success.
