Color, a BridgeTower Media business group that delivers premier content, events, and resources focused on empowering professionals of color, today announced its inaugural Power List of 50 Chief Diversity Officers (CDOs). Color’s Power 50 recognizes CDOs across the nation who are shaping and innovating the future of diversity, equity, inclusion (DEI), and belonging. Honorees will be announced on February 24th.
The list includes CDOs from across sectors, including business, academia, sports, healthcare, tech, arts and culture. Color will honor the Power 50 CDOs in a special digital publication, e-newsletter announcements, social media shoutouts, and additional promotions on Color’s website. The special digital publication announcing the honorees will be published on Color’s website and distributed on February 24th to 17,000 subscribers and industry leaders. It will feature interviews and profiles with the Power 50 honorees and America’s leading DEI professionals.
“Our inaugural Power 50 recognizes the nation’s leading CDOs for their accomplishments as a diversity, equity, and inclusion leader,” said Kamilah A’Vant, Director of Diversity Programs at BridgeTower. “Their outstanding contributions have inspired and empowered professionals of color and earned them the honor of being included in our first-ever Power 50. Congratulations to all the honorees and we are looking forward to celebrating and spotlighting their contributions across our family of brands.”
