Every year Forbes publishes a list of nearly 80 people who make the world turn. The annual list is made up of presidents, prime ministers, CEOs, spiritual leaders, and some of the world's richest people. In today's viz, we share the most recent results and some of the underlying data behind the ranking. The information corresponds to the four dimensions Forbes uses to assess candidates:

  1. Power over people. Or, the ability to influence lives. This power dimension is inherent to the position of a president, ruling over a country with millions of inhabitants. Spiritual leaders have a similar inherent ability to influence the millions and even billions of believers of a given faith.
  2. Financial resources. This dimension includes candidates’ control over financial resources, such as a countries' GDP in the case of heads of state and corporate assets and revenues controlled by heads of corporations.
  3. Participation in multiple spheres. Exerting influence across multiple areas—geography, industry, and the like—further distinguishes candidates.
  4. Active use of resources. It is not enough to possess or control vast resources. To rank among the most powerful, Forbes examines how effectively an individual exercises those resources.

Gender Diversity and Corporate Boards | Global Trends

It will of course require more than a bronzed statue of a strong-willed girl taking on the bull of Wall Street to force a sustained and amplified role for women in the upper echelons of the corporate world.  But, how far have we come globally in opening c-suites and corporate board rooms to women?  On average, during the period from 2008 to 2014, the participation rate of women on corporate boards increased in most of the publicly traded corporations included in major equity indices. Some notable differences emerge when accounting for gender quotas and industry trends:Markets with gender diversity quotas had a higher proportion of females...

Gender Imbalances and Female Foeticide

In 2014, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced a wide-sweeping reform and economic growth plan to address female foeticide in India under a campaign called, “Educate the Girl, Save the Girl”.  Through the empowerment of women, Prime Minister Modi sought to stop female feoticide, a practice which has grown in India over the last few decades as fetus imaging technology to confirm the gender of the fetus has developed and become more broadly available. As a result, while the overall ratio of females to males (feminity ratio) in India has gradually improved, the ratio among newborn babies has deteriorated. In the mid-1970s, the ratio of...
