What a journey! A couple of months ago, we started this bold project together with our presenting partner Capgemini Invent. Our high-profile jury has curated a shortlist of finalists from over 100 names. Extraordinary women who have one thing in common: they change the world for the better. They fight for human rights and peace, for diversity and inclusion in all its facets, for climate and species protection and the conservation of the habitats of indigenous communities. They broaden our horizon and touch us with their unique art, their great books, and their music.
