NEW YORK – JUNE 2, 2021 – Forbes today unveils its inaugural “50 Over 50” List, which spotlights the diverse voices and work of female entrepreneurs and leaders over the age of 50. This landmark Forbes list is dedicated to shining a light on 50 women over the age of 50 who have achieved significant success later in life, often overcoming formidable odds or barriers. This first-of-its-kind list is in partnership with Mika Brzezinski and her “Know Your Value” platform and is a part of Forbes’ special “Inclusive Capitalism” initiative.

For these dynamic women, growing older is about getting wiser—and bolder. Meet the inaugural class of entrepreneurs, leaders, and creators who are part of an exhilarating movement redefining life’s second half and proving that success has no age limit.
Selected from a pool of more than 10,000 nominees, the members of the 50 Over 50 are founding and running companies at scale ($20 million or more in revenue for for-profit companies), leading movements and changing the world. They’re working across all sectors of the American economy—venture capital, education, politics, major league sports and more—and, importantly, they’re paying forward their after-50 success.
In a moment when a global pandemic has pushed a disproportionate number of women out of the workforce—and, among this demographic, forced hundreds of thousands into too-early retirements—it is our hope that the stories of the women on this list resonate, inform and inspire.
