Retail leaders from Saks, Google, Coach, Ulta Beauty and Olaplex were among those named in the third annual list of the 25 most inspirational women leaders in the US.

The list is picked by three business networks — the Retail Influencer Network, The DealmakeHers and The Z Suite — in partnership with the Women in Retail Leadership Circle.

The 2024 honourees have been awarded for their shared passion for driving inclusivity and diversity in leadership and mentoring future generations of female leaders in retail.

Their names and photos will appear on the American Eagle billboard in Times Square in New York City on 5 March and will feature in a social media campaign.

Founder of the Retail Influencer Network, The DealmakeHers and The Z Suite, Stacy Berns, commented: “We’re thrilled to honour these 25 women who have had an outsize impact on the retail industry and whose vision and leadership continue to inspire us daily.”

Berns Communications Group’s Retail Influencer Network is an exclusive community of senior business leaders and influential investors and analysts.
