Fortune Magazine’s annual list celebrates men and women who are transforming lives in all spheres including government, business and philanthropy.
In compiling the 2015 list, the magazine explained that it gathered advice from more than 24 of the world’s best minds.
The leaders were judged by their actions within their professional domains, industries or governance.
According to the magazine, “to make this roster, it was not enough to be brilliant, admirable or even supremely powerful. We set out to find singular leaders with vision who moved others to act as well, and who brought their followers with them on a shared quest. We looked for effectiveness and commitment and for the courage to pioneer.”
