INvolve, the Inclusion People, launched its annual HERoes Role Model Lists. These celebrate business leaders from sectors and industries around the world who achieved success and continue to provide opportunities for the next generation of women leaders.
Inspiring role models
Those included on the HERoes Role Models Lists were nominated by their peers and colleagues. They were selected based on their work to advance gender equality and inclusion both within and outside of their organization. A judging panel comprised of global business representatives reviewed each submission and selected Role Models within three categories:
- Top Executives
- Future Leaders
- Advocate Executives
