Kiran Mazumdar Shaw features on the Forbes list of The World's 100 Most Powerful Women

Bangalore August 20, 2009

Kiran Mazumdar Shaw, Chairman and Managing Director of Biocon Ltd, India’s leading biotechnology major, was featured in this prestigious ranking by Forbes. This year, only 3 Indians are featured in the list.

Forbes' Power Women list isn't about celebrity or popularity; it's about influence. In assembling the list, Forbes looked for women who run countries, big companies or influential nonprofits. Their rankings are a combination of two scores: visibility--by press mentions--and the size of the organization or country these women lead.

Kiran Mazumdar Shaw has steered Biocon, which she founded in 1978 to make industrial enzymes into a top-20 global biotech company, Biocon makes drugs, including insulin and anti-cancer treatments, and its chairman is spearheading India's rapidly growing biotech industry. Ms. Shaw donates half of her dividends to fund hospitals and a health insurance program for poor villagers and has won the Padma Bhushan, one of India's highest civilian honors.
