MUMBAI: Many a successful organisation in India's media, advertising, marketing and entertainment ecosphere have women leaders in key management and ownership positions. Where once women were assigned jobs related to programming or ad sales or media – and mostly at the middle management level – today many a lady professional by the sheer dint of their talent, hard work and excellence, have come to occupy the corner office as well as key pivotal management roles. But a lot more needs to be done. A lot more inclusiveness needs to come into the corporate world.
In a bid to recognise those professional women who have risen to the top despite all odds, on the occasion of International Women’s Day, Indiantelevision.com is happy to present Wonder Women 2021 – 100 of the best from the world of media, advertising, marketing and entertainment.
