2009 TOP 100 Under 50 Executive & Emerging Leaders

 

CHICAGO, IL- DiversityMBA Magazine, an internationally distributed publication targeting multicultural professionals in corporate America, government, entrepreneurs, and business students, names the Top 100 Under 50 Diverse Executive & Emerging Leaders with MBAs and advanced degrees.  They will be featured in the Summer 2009 issue and honored at the Awards Gala held September 16th & 17th, 2009 in Chicago, Illinois.

Diversity MBA Magazine is the publication for professionals seeking to enhance their network and net worth by engaging with the Top 100 Under 50 Diverse Executive and Emerging Leaders network. The leadership magazine recognizes exceptional executives who are striving for and/or have reached success within the highly competitive corporate, government and entrepreneurial environments. The magazine also recognizes emerging leaders, the rising stars in their community and organizations. The Top 100 Under 50 Executive and Emerging Leaders were selected based on their position within a publicly or privately held company, a successful entrepreneurial company, or not for profit organization, the size of budget managed, scope of responsibility, community service work, and MBA and/or advanced degree.

We are also pleased that many of the companies on the 50 Out Front List for Diverse Managers to Work” are again included in our list this time recognizing the achievements of their employees. These companies not only demonstrate their strong commitment to diversity but also understand the value of supporting programs that enhance leadership and retention within their organizations.

“I am truly humbled by the level of commitment from companies across America that understand the value of recognizing both executive and emerging leaders within their organizations. We are especially proud to acknowledge a broad range of talent not only in America, but also across the globe. The demand for more diverse talent is not declining, it is becoming a greater business imperative. Through this recognition we are providing acknowledgment of achievement, leadership development and creating an unique network of exceptionally talented individuals,” says Pam McElvane, CEO & Publisher.
