Innovation Inspiration — #3

50 Incredible Women Over 50

Today’s inspiration comes from Forbes’ 50 over 50 list. How can these incredible women inspire YOUR work?

May the 50 over 50 inspire you to make the world a better place! As a woman of a certain age, I was very pleased to see that Forbes has honored 50 accomplished professionals this year. It’s refreshing to see an organization value the experience and wisdom that women over 50 bring to the table. Among the notables are a few women that I particularly admire, and I’ve included their Twitter profiles in today’s newsletter. (Note that I would include Opal Lee’s Twitter profile if I could find it. Fun fact: A friend happened to call Opal when canvassing for the last presidential election and had the conversation of a lifetime with her!)

Who else would you nominate for such a list and why? Anyone in the field of education in particular? Send me a Tweet @elemenous with your suggestions!

50 Over 50 2021:
For these dynamic women, growing older is about getting wiser — and bolder. Meet the dreamers and doers lifting the world one community at a time.
