Kejriwal named among world’s 50 greatest leaders by Fortune

Arvind Kejriwal has been named among the world’s 50 greatest leaders by Fortune magazine with the Delhi Chief Minister being the sole Indian leader on the list topped by Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos. Fortune’s third annual ‘World’s 50 Greatest Leaders’ list features men and women from across the globe from the fields of business, government, philanthropy and the arts who are “transforming the world and inspiring others to do the same.”

Also on the list is Saujani, Founder and CEO of tech organization ‘Girls Who Code’. Fortune lauded the 40-year old former Wall Street attorney for her message that girls should be taught to be brave rather than perfect. Her organization aims to get more women into computer science and by the end of this year, more than 40,000 girls will have gone through its training and internship programmes, Fortune said.

Giving company to Kejriwal from South Asia is Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on the number 10 spot. Fortune said the 68-year -old politician, the only female leader among the Organization of Islamic Cooperation member states, has “deftly navigated the competing demands of Islamic tradition and women’s rights”
