As part of our special third anniversary issue, we return to our longest-running series, Women in Leadership, to spotlight ten more women leaders who are pushing the boundaries of the industry and driving us toward an equitable, innovative, and sustainable future. We’re also thrilled to introduce the first installment of our third exclusive series, the Data Center World Tour, in which our President, Vinay Nagpal, and “Godfather of Data Centers,” Buddy Rizer, get insights from data center leaders about 17 key data center markets around the globe and discuss how this sector of the industry is the growth engine for the digital economy. Vint Cerf, our regular contributor, also shares his thoughts on why AI could use a Freudian superego to balance its limitations.
In today’s data-driven world, leadership is an extremely complex business.
From continual development due to the introduction and adoption of new
technologies, such as AI, to the changing geopolitical landscape in which we
operate, one thing is clear: Leaders must remain agile and adaptable. This
feature story celebrates the women in leadership who are breaking ground
to address these challenges and drive their organizations toward success.
