The HERoes 100 Female Executives is part of the wider HERoes Champions of Women in Business initiative, which celebrates progress being made towards gender diversity in business around the world.

All of the 2019 Champions of Women in Business were nominated by peers and colleagues. Nominations were then reviewed by the HERoes judging panel, consisting of: Mellody Hobson, President, Ariel Investments; Gigi Chao, Vice Chairman, Cheuk Nang Holdings Limited; Helena Morrissey, Head of Personal Investing, Legal & General Investment Management; Lianna Brinded, Head of Yahoo Finance UK and Suki Sandhu, Founder & CEO, INvolve.

Founder &CEO of INvolve, Suki Sandhu OBE, said: “These lists have been created with one aim – to create gender parity in workplaces across the globe. The role models we’re recognising aren’t just those who have achieved success themselves – they’re those who are committed to lifting others with them as they climb, and ultimately fuelling the female talent pipeline.

Sara Luder, partner at Slaughter and May said, “Gender diversity is something we value greatly at Slaughter and May. The legal sector has made some significant strides in recent years but there is still much more to be done, and we look forward to continuing to play our part.”
