We are proud to announce the 2019 Class of The Tempest’s 40 Women to Watch, our annual list that moves past a simple collection of impressive achievements, instead choosing to highlight truly revolutionary leaders and changemakers.
We spent months collecting hundreds of nominations and scouring the globe for women changing the world, whether on local or global levels. From community organizers to entrepreneurs leading high-growth businesses, these individuals have left an indelible mark on the economy. Choosing these honorees among hundreds of nominees is a difficult process, relying on the knowledge and authority of our wide-reaching community and skilled in-house team. These final honorees are shining examples of what can be achieved by women with vision in all corners of the globe. We invite you to explore, to dive into their stories, and follow their incredible journeys. With that, it’s our honor to introduce you to the future.
