Kirstie McIntyre

From a school gap year spent in South America to pioneering a new field of sustainable supply chains, Dr. Kirstie McIntyre’s ideas have helped to set essential environmental standards for global busineses such as her employer, HP. Inc. McIntyre’s belief that sustainability is a powerful force for innovation is changing industry for the better, and is aligned with the principles of the Circular Economy. Her work has opened the minds of businesses—and the world is more sustainable as a result.


Auma Obama

Dr. Auma Obama, founder and director of Kenya’s Sauti Kuu Foundation, understands the importance of activating the potential of youth. Since 2009, Sauti Kuu has led children to become self-reliant through locally available resources so they do not need to leave their own communities. Obama, by enabling real and sustainable change, is giving new generations of leaders access to the development of their countries and their very future.



Reema Al Sadlan

In 2017, Reema Al Sadlan was Saudi Arabia’s only female Stevie Award winner.  Working in a conservative country where women used to face many obstacles when it came to work, Al Sadlan forged her career path despite all odds, working her way up through the ranks, to eventually becoming the first female at her company to train teams in an otherwise all male office, inspiring many of her peers along the way.


Sabine Mueller

Too much comfort zone, too few female leaders. Sabine Mueller, CEO of DHL Consulting, knows a diversified corporation is key to better business, but in order to achieve this gender-parity, all women and leaders in logistics must be willing to question traditional behaviors. Mueller encourages women in fields of logistics to take charge of their careers, and also implores all logistics leaders to put women’s career advancement on their agenda to promote diversity throughout their organizations.


Susie Goodall

Susie Goodall has a knack for setting high goals.  The 28-year-old will be the only female competing in the 2018 Golden Globe solo, non-stop 48,000 km yacht race around the world. Though she’s been sailing since aged 3, Susie will race in this competition without the use of modern technology and navigation aids before returning in 2019 to Les Sables d’Olonne, France. Let’s go, Susie!
