Career Mastered Diversity IMPACT 50 List

Career Mastered magazine announced the release of its 2022 Women's Leadership Diversity IMPACT 50 list highlighting the extraordinary achievements of our nation's leading women changemakers in Diversity & Inclusion. This year's list includes honorees from a variety of fields and disciplines including business, media, activism, education and more.

"We assembled an elite group of women recognized for their executive leadership, commitment to diversity and inclusion, and remarkable impact in our world," said Dr. Lisa Lindsay Wicker, CEO & Publisher of Career Mastered magazine. The Career Mastered Diversity IMPACT 50 honorees will be recognized during the Career Mastered National Women's History Leadership Diversity Summit & Awards event held on March 22-23, in Charlotte, North Carolina.

The Career Mastered editors, advisory board, and strategic partners compiled and assessed a national group of women for the Diversity IMPACT 50 list based on their contributions to the advancement of diversity and inclusion over the past year. Women selected are those who are playing their part to make an impactful difference in the world after the global pandemic has forced so many to reassess the way they work and live. Our 2022 list features women who embody this year's theme - Engage: Creating the Possibilities for The Future. Each honoree is a respected leader in her field with an inspiring story of challenge, triumph, and positive impact fueled by their commitment to creating inclusive environments where people are valued for their differences.
