TOP 100 Under 50 Diverse Executive Leaders


CHICAGO, IL- DiversityMBA Magazine, a nationally distributed publication targeting multicultural professionals in corporate America, business students and entrepreneurs, names the Top 100 Under 50 Diverse Executive Leaders with MBAs and post graduate degrees.  They will be featured in the Summer 2008 issue.

As a complement to its Spring 2008 issue, which published survey results of its “Top 50 Companies for Diverse Managers to Work,” the Summer 2008 issue of Diversity MBA Magazine recognizes exceptional executives who are striving for and/or have reached success within the highly competitive corporate environment. The Top 100 under 50 executives were selected based on their position within a publicly or privately held company, the size of budget they manage, their scope of responsibility, their community service work, and the MBA degree and/or post graduate degree they achieved. Additionally we have expanded the list to include diversity at the global level, and we acknowledge the top 100 under 50 diverse rising stars.

We are also pleased to note that many of the companies honored in the “Top 50 Companies for Diverse Managers to Work” are again included in our list this time in recognition of their employee’s achievement as a Top 100 under 50 executive.  These companies not only demonstrate their strong commitment to diversity but also are eager to spotlight their talented diverse executives.

“As we move into globalization, it has become a business imperative to be truly inclusive in how we view our environments. The demand for more diverse executives has broadened the landscape for opportunities around the globe.  We are impressed with the level of commitment and excellence we experienced in this process.  It is an absolute testament to how critical it is to recognize and to continue to develop diverse leadership,” says Pam McElvane, CEO & Publisher.
