The centerpiece of the Women in Banking program are rankings of the 25 Most Powerful Women in Banking and the 25 Most Powerful Women in Finance. In addition, American Banker identifies 25 Women to Watch and recognizes Top Teams in Banking to honor companies with strong female representation in their senior ranks. “The women selected for the ranking are not only exceptional at their jobs, but an inspiration to others. They are leaders, at their companies, in the industry and in their communities,” said Executive Editor Bonnie McGeer, who chairs American Banker’s Women in Banking Editorial Committee. “Our hope is that by calling attention to such outstanding women, we can help amplify efforts by the industry to diversify its senior ranks.”
