Actual Agency, a global strategic communications consulting firm, today announces the 2023 Purposeful 50 nominees. Recognizing leaders and influencers in sustainability, corporate purpose, and ESG, the inaugural list published by Actual Agency in 2021 was a powerful exercise that included Fortune 500 corporate executives, nonprofit leaders, activists, academics, educators, journalists, influencers, and strategists. The selected individuals on both lists are true changemakers who deliver on social justice, environmental protection, diversity, inclusion, racial equality, and gender and pay equity.
While certainly not all-encompassing, those on the 2023 list are driving measurable and impactful results that educate, shift ways of thinking, make lives better, open doors, facilitate inclusion, and help ensure the long-term viability of the planet.
Over the past several years, we have watched ESG and purpose evolve from a reporting structure to global, consensus-based standards initiatives that determine how and what organizations report at a very granular level. The work of the innovators who drive these missions is now viewed as an interconnected web of dynamic decisions that work collectively to make a big difference.
Without further ado, we are pleased to present the 2nd Purposeful 50 influencers of 2023 in alphabetical order. Take the time to get to know these individuals. Follow them on LinkedIn and Twitter. Learn about their work, and unique perspectives and help amplify their thinking to celebrate their contributions.
