This is a list (with single paragraph descriptions) of 186 women who have accomplished great things in the area of Analytics. There is a brief accompanying article at the Forbes magazine website, but it is very brief. The author of this list, Meta S. Brown, defines Analytics quite broadly, so the women have very diverse backgrounds and interests. I only recognized one name off the bat, Grace Wahba, an excellent researcher, but someone, unfortunately, that I haven’t met. If I get a chance, I’ll include in a separate blog post a list of outstanding women in Analytics that I HAVE met. Meta Brown’s list includes links so you can find out more about these talented women.
