Inaugural Top 50 Power Women

Irish America celebrates the inaugural Top 50 Power Women.

By Irish America Staff
June / July 2016

The women featured on this list perform some of the most pioneering work currently done in their manifold industries, from literature, media, and fashion to technology, business, finance, and politics. In many cases, they are representative of the crest of a new wave determined to shore up a more inclusive professional space for women, particularly in fields that have yet to reflect the full diversity of American demographics.

Together, they are bound by a deep appreciation for the influence of their heritage on who they are today and the opportunities made available by their forebears. Whether born in Ireland or a descendent of a more distant immigrant, our honorees are a testament to the scope, power, influence, and esteem the Irish diaspora increasingly holds in today’s global economy.

Irish America is proud to salute the inaugural Top 50 Power Women.
