Just a little initiative from a few organizations interested in changing the ratio by doing interesting things.

SheSays is an award-winning organization for the advancement of women's careers in marketing, creative and technology industry.

Shout is a opowerful network made up of 3,000+ professional women in advertising and marketing ready to answer cleint briefs and work together to solve challenages for brands.

Since about April 15 2011, we've been collecting the names of accomplished women in advertising and marketing because women should do a better job at self-promoting.

Equalisters is a diversity project aiming to correct the imbalances of representation in media, culture, and business. We provide a service that generates positive, proactive, and concrete recommendations.


Everyday we at SheSays, PLH and Equalisters get asked if we know a woman for this, that and the other. And it’s not that we don’t like being asked such things. We all love to big-up and help women. And because of that, we’ve decided to launch this widget so we can broaden our list of superstars and get everybody to see and contribute to the list.

We want to create a open-source tool for everyone to find great women in their fields. And although we are starting small with just a few industries we want to eventually get to different disciplines. So how can you help? Two ways:
1. Help us promote the widget by embedding it on your blog, tumblr or wherever. Just click on ‘add this to my blog’ link to get the embed code.
2. After you played with it, please use the comment box to suggest someone and we’ll check them out and hopefully add to the main list.

And together let’s create a useful tool for people in any industry who want to change the ratio when it comes to having more women at the top.
