PDJ Announces Black Leaders Worth Watching™ Award Winners for 2020
Recognizing the Achievements of Black Leaders at Work, in the Marketplace, and in Communities across the Globe
CLEVELAND, OH, October 1, 2020 – Profiles in Diversity Journal® is pleased to announce the 54 winners of the magazine’s inaugural Black Leaders Worth Watching™ Awards. These outstanding leaders demonstrate their talents and skills, their dedication to excellence in all they do, their willingness to mentor and support the next generation, and their commitment to the larger community.
“We are proud and pleased to honor these outstanding leaders and recognize the organizations that support their success,” says James Rector, Profiles in Diversity Journal publisher. “With this year’s Award, we introduce our first class of Black Leaders Worth Watching. We look forward to featuring many more remarkable black leaders in the pages of our magazine over the coming years.”
Each Black Leader Worth Watching Award recipient’s abilities, commitment, and achievements will be showcased in Profiles in Diversity Journal’s fall 2020 issue. And each Award recipient will share his or her experiences, opinions, and words of advice with our readers, many of whom may become tomorrow’s Black Leaders Worth Watching.
The organizations that nominate candidates for this Award demonstrate C-suite support of people of color in leadership, and the inclusion of the Award winners in the magazine enhances the reputations of those organizations that employ, support, and empower these high achievers. The 2020 Black Leaders Worth Watching edition of Profiles in Diversity Journal will be available online, at www.diversityjournal.com, in late November.
Below are the names and job titles of this year’s award recipients, along with the names of the organizations who nominated them for this honor.
