Meet The Incredible Inductees To The Inaugural Women Leading Tech Power List!

Meet The Incredible Inductees To The Inaugural Women Leading Tech Power List!

The 20 inductees to the inaugural Women Leading Tech Power List have been revealed and they make for incredible reading.

Featuring inspirational CEOs such as Melanie Perkins, founders including Maree Isaacs and leading scientists such as Dr. Cathy Foley, the Women Leading Tech Power List showcases the most powerful women in the sector.

These lists are based on four simple criteria:

1. The size and health of the organisation of which the woman is a part of,
2. The social, cultural, economic and even political importance of the work that they do,
3. The arc of their career — which sometimes involves a squiggly line rather than a straight course to the top,
4. How each woman uses her power to help inclusivity and equality.

Of course, this is a subjective ranking. It would be reductive to rank these women based on any arbitrary but quantifiable metric, such as market capitalisation when they contribute so much more to so many more people.
