Recognizing the reign makers: The queens of philanthropy and the reach of their realm

For International Women’s Day 2014, we wanted to highlight women who use their connections for good. These are the 5 most powerful women in the non-profit sector according to Forbes

  1. Melinda Gates, Co-Founder, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation
  2. Ertharin Cousin, Executive Director, United Nations World Food Program 
  3. Drew Gilpin Faust, President, Harvard University
  4. Helene Gayle, President & Chief Executive Officer, CARE
  5. Judith Rodin, President, The Rockefeller Foundation 


We dug into their networks in the RelSci platform to map the range of their influence.
