A project launched by:

In a world of disinformation, fake news, failing leadership and constant change, we are in need of innovative and fearless thinking. We believe that women's role is crucial in the creation of understanding in our societies.

Our initiative Athena40 (launched in March 2018), is the first ever global ranking of the top 40 most powerful female minds.

Women who are born to push their limits, fly high, speak up, open new paths for all of us. Women have the ability to balance reason and emotion. In a polarised and uncertain world, we need both.

Our Athena40 discovers and acknowledges the work of the 40 most dynamic, active and fearless female thought leaders, columnists, commentators and activists across all industries and from all over the world.

Recognising originality and fearless thinking.

Athena was dedicated to positive change.

In mythology Athena was the goddess who taught mankind various skills such as weaving and sewing to the women and agriculture and metallurgy to men. She was always giving precious advice and stood by on any danger. Athena protected the heroes as they went out to war and saved them on their coming back.

What can contemporary 'Athenas' do, for our world?
