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. The intention is not only to honour these fabulous professionals but also motivate the next generation of women who are slowly moving their way up the ladder in different organisations across the board.

The powerful list which honours 100 top women achievers from the industry has been put together with the help of an esteemed advisory board comprising of senior professionals from the industry including Applause Entertainment CEO Sameer Nair, House of Cheer founder Raj Nayak, RED FM director Nisha Narayanan, Lodestar UM CEO Nandini Dias, Discovery Communications MD-South Asia Megha Tata, Social Access founder Lynn de Souza, Armugum and Consultants founder Punitha Arumugam, Allied Blenders and Distillers (ABD) CMO Anupam Bokey, the Walt Disney Company head – human resources APAC & India Amita Maheshwari, IN10 Media Networks MD Aditya Pittiee, and Indiantelevision.com, founder and editor-in-chief Anil Wanvari.

The moment is here, the names are out; find out who these standout ladies are here:
