Dynamic leadership, camaraderie shine at IMPACT's 50 Most Influential Women awards night

The fourth edition of IMPACT’s ‘50 Most Influential Women’ list to recognize the achievements of women in the Media, Marketing and Advertising industry was unveiled amidst much fanfare on Wednesday, March 18, 2015. We spoke to some of the winners at the event and asked them to share their thoughts on what the award means to them.

Kirthiga Reddy,
Managing Director of Facebook India

The evening was fantastic and it is truly humbling to be on this list with so many women from media, marketing and advertising. If I think about my award, it is a reflection of the huge shift that we are in the midst of... to digital and especially to mobile... and all that we have done together as an industry. It has been truly fun building this ecosystem together and to work with so many of our partners in helping build their brands, helping drive products off shelves, so it is really a collective award of what we have done together in this ecosystem.

Sonali Dhawan
Marketing Director, P&G India

It’s always good to be recognised by peers and by the industry. It’s good to be on this list because this is the time I get to meet so many friends and other women who are doing such great work. So I like this event particularly because I get to interact with great women from the industry. It makes me feel proud, as well as thankful, particularly for what life has to offer and of course, for the company that I work for.

Priya Nair
Executive Director, Home Care, Hindustan Unilever Ltd.

It’s absolutely great to receive this award. I think the award has been in play now for a few years and it’s becoming an honour and a prestige to be a part of this group. And it’s always nice to be recognised for your work. So it feels great.
