About the Global Power 150

The Global Power 150 list is not a ranking but a way to recognize women in leadership positions and to increase visibility for the important contributions these influencers have made across the industry. While those contributions and their careers have been remarkable, so have the efforts many have made in the last year to build their communities, including their DE&I initiatives. These honorees have helped to shape a $445 billion global staffing industry while paving the way for a more equitable future of work. The 2021 list includes 26 women who are being named to the list for the first time and spotlights many women for their efforts to uplift varied communities by knocking down barriers to their advancement while providing them with employment opportunities through new and tested methods.

“Through the compilation of the 2021 Global Power 150 – Women in Staffing list, we see that despite great odds, the women in our industry are actively advocating for equality in the workplace for other women, as well as historically excluded groups, by mentoring and developing training and other programs and partnerships to lift each other up,” said Subadhra Sriram, Editor & Publisher, Media Products at SIA. “The progress may be slow and results yet unseen, but the first steps have been taken. And this is a huge step forward for the ecosystem as we move towards a more inclusive and diverse world of work.”

“We're excited to sponsor the SIA Global Power 150 – Women in Staffing list for the 7th year in a row,” said Art Papas, Founder and CEO of Bullhorn. “The executives on this list continually rise to the challenge, in times of crisis and growth, to navigate market conditions and provide a role model for tomorrow's leaders. It's an honor to help recognize their achievements and ongoing industry impact.”

The Global Power 150 – Women in Staffing website debuts the full 2021 list today, showcasing these inspiring leaders and the impact they have on the industry. Profiles of the Americas 100 are also featured in the November/December 2021 issue of Staffing Industry Review magazine.
