Meet the Global Power 100 — Women in Staffing

Blog postMeet the luminaries — women who have climbed to the top of the staffing world. It’s fitting that the Global Power 100 – Women in Staffing site should be up the week after Labor Day, a holiday in honor of working people. We have the privilege of recognizing these women who have worked hard to elevate the staffing industry.

It’s a common lament: There are too few women in positions of leadership and power. The Global Gender Gap Index introduced by the World Economic Forum in 2006 captures the magnitude of gender-based disparities and tracks their progress. 2014 was the ninth edition of the Index, allowing for time-series analysis on the changing patterns of gender equality around the world.

The idea: first draw attention to the problem and then make attempts to fix it. This inaugural list is Staffing Industry Analysts’ attempt at highlighting women’s contributions in a positive way. On the face of it, there are many women in branch offices filling admin and clerical positions. But there is a glass ceiling, few make it to the boardroom. By showcasing these women, we hope to draw attention to the gender gap that exists in staffing, albeit less than in some other industries— and introduce talking points that lead the industry forward.

Regardless of titles, these women are game changers, people who have taken their operations to a whole new level. Please take a moment to applaud these honorees. Our original plan called for 50 nominations from around the globe. However, a tremendous response to the call led to the global 100, which includes 50 names from North America and 50 from Europe, Asia, South America and the Middle East. We have enjoyed putting this list together and if there’s a nomination you would like to submit to us for the coming year, please click here.

Thanks and congratulations to those who took the time to send us their recommendations, and to the Staffing Industry Analysts team that put it together. The staffing industry ecosystem is the richer for the list. We hope to continue this practice annually.
