“As diversity, equity, and inclusion are finally being seen and acknowledged as serious, pressing matters of discussion, we are delighted to honor and recognize those who have been tirelessly championing belonging and allyship - even before the topic was on the forefront of Americans’ minds. We thank you, our top 50 Multicultural Leaders, for your work and commitment, and we look forward to witnessing all that you’ll accomplish, all the leaders that you’ll develop, and the impact you’ll leave behind in the DEI sphere.” says National Diversity & Leadership Conference founder Dennis Kennedy.
