Innovators Transforming the Landscape


Mariana Costa Checa's initiative, Laboratoria, exemplifies how harnessing digital skills can empower underemployed women and narrow the gender gap in technology. Her efforts demonstrate the profound impact of inclusive education on individual lives and the tech industry​.


Naomi Kelman's journey from a wide-eyed student to the CEO of Willow, where she introduced the first "in your bra" quiet breast pump, highlights the essence of innovation driven by empathy and the desire to improve the lives of mothers everywhere​.


Sara Menker's venture into Gro Intelligence showcases how leveraging AI for global food security addresses a critical issue and exemplifies technology's potential when directed toward humanitarian goals​.


These stories, alongside those of Laura J. Alber's transformative leadership at Williams-Sonoma and Mary Barra's historic role at General Motors, inspire and illustrate that female leadership and innovation are integral to the future of business and beyond​.


Join us in honoring these innovators and many more as we continue to champion women's role in shaping the future of business and innovation and their drive to attain the same level of success and economic empowerment as their male peers.

iKadre Insights


Stories behind closed-door C-suit meetings usually hold the most value for ambitious entrepreneurs. I recall many of these shared-in-confidence strategies similar to tech giants' moves. The business leaders venture into an uncharted market, guided by a blend of predictive analytics and unconventional insights, focusing on a small but growing, fiercely loyal demographic. This strategic pivot, diverting from their mainstream products, seemed risky but was deeply informed by an acute understanding of market nuances. The outcome was a successful product line and even a touchstone, proving the immense potential of niche markets. This familiar narrative among the Hall of Fame of business success underscores a profound lesson: true innovation and diversification often require the courage to explore beyond the conventional, finding strength in the less-versed spaces. This essence of delving into unexpected territories exemplifies the core of diversifying revenue streams—turning unexplored into unparalleled growth.
