With more and more women leading the charge in business, now Wendy Alexander, associate dean of London Business School, has joined a list of ‘100 Women to Watch’ in business.
Cranfield’s list of 100 women business leaders includes luminaries such as nuclear physicist Veronique Arnoldi-Dargue of Aviva Investors, Anne Bulford of the BBC, and Diane Varrin Eshleman of Barclays Capital.
Now they’re joined by Wendy Alexander – retired Scottish politician, and associate dean of London Business School. Alexander sits on the LBS executive committee, and provides direction and leadership for top-ranked degree programmes in London, New York, Dubai and Hong Kong.
Tomorrow’s leaders need to build global teams
Wendy Alexander said, “At London Business School we aim to inspire the next generation of business leaders. We anticipate what the well-educated business person of the future needs to know.
Tomorrow’s leaders will have to build global teams, drawing on colleagues from diverse cultures, varied markets and multiple professional roles.
Cranfield’s ‘top 100’ list is part of its Female FTSE report, which was launched in 2010 to monitor how women are represented on the boards of FTSE 100 companies. Its most recent report found that, between late 2012 and early 2013, 26% of new FTSE 100 board appointments went to women.
