A s a kid, I knew I wanted to be a reporter. Closing my eyes, I had an image of what that future looked like for me after college, when I was 30, then All with a family mixed in some way, somehow.
Anything at 50 and beyond, though, proved mental white space. Did women even have careers at those ages? Now four years into my 50s, I wish my teenage self could have conjured what I see now. Women over 50 are having a moment. A year-old woman is vice president of the United States. A 64 year-old woman runs UPS. At 74, Janet Yellen runs the U. Treasury; year-old Nancy Pelosi serves as Speaker of the House.
Far better, though: all these women, like millions of us, achieved their best successes after Rather than just hanging on, experience and wisdom translate into our most productive days lying in front of us. Men already have their own 50 Over 50 lists. The Business Roundtable. The U. And so on.
Women, of course, recognize that the former is useless without the latter. To help focus, we sorted candidates into three major buckets: rainmakers from CEOs to private equity titansvisionaries whether tech entrepreneurs or artists and changemakers from politics to social entrepreneurship.
Most of these incredible women touch all three. We received more than 10, nominations for the 50 Over 50, and reviewed every single one, amazing story after amazing story.
A large team of screeners winnowed that initial list, using the criteria above, to a few hundred. These iconic women over 50 helped us develop this final list.
The are inspiring. Jill Biden recently told me when I relayed some of the names we had discovered, or re-discovered. And that path has never extended longer, or looked more beautiful.
Just as modern technology has chipped away at the biological clock, relieving many women of the need to pack everything into their 30s freeze your eggs if you need to! How do I know this is taking hold? Because in a world that has valued female youth for millennia, where shaving a few years down felt expected, our fact-checkers found several prospective listees who had lied upto get themselves over our threshold.
