Women in Business are still unfortunately an unusual term to some countries. It’s not because of men, but because of the nation and government and the way the people were raised, seeing a woman working a “mans job” seems strange and wrong. Look at Saudi Arabia and the law prohibiting women from driving, in the eyes of the rest of the world that’s absolutely ridiculous, but to both men and women in their country it’s just the way life goes, forget about making a woman CEO. Luckily there are many women who prove that women not only can be, but ARE so much more than that. Let’s take a look at some of the worlds most successful women in Business:
Indra Nooyi – She’s the Chairman and CEO of PepsiCo and has sales of over $40 billion.
Irene Rosenfeld – She’s the Chairman and CEO of Kraft Foods and her company has about $48 billion in revenue
Patricia Woertz – Chairman, President and CEO of Archer Daniels Midland otherwise known as ADM (also known because of the movie “The Informant’). In 2009 their stocks rose 13%.
Andre Jung – Chairman and CEO of Avon Products, and inspiration to all Avon women all over the world
Oprah – She’s Chairman of Harpo and OWN and has been the Queen of Talk for years. She maybe leaving the talk show but it’s certainly not the last we’ve heard of her.
Ginni Rometty – Currently Senior vice President, Group Executive and is in charge of Sales Marketing, and Strategy and also the lead candidate to become the next CEO of IBM
Sherilyn McCoy – Worldwide Chairman of Johnson & Johnson. She may have had a rough year but she’s not slowing down. They have 11 new drug filings planned over the next 13 years.
