Submit for the Empower Lists 2023

The deadline for nominations and submissions is Friday 24th February

The Empower Role Model Lists aims to recognize those who are working beyond their job role to drive diversity and inclusion within business.

We therefore ask every potential Role Model to complete a short submission which outlines the key work they have been doing to create more inclusive cultures both inside and outside of their workplace.

Our expert judging panel will use this information to create a final List of inspiring Role Models which is representative of the full and diverse range of impactful and innovative work being done for inclusion across different countries, organizations and sectors.

Nominees for our Empower Role Model Lists must be business people of color. Those who are not yet senior leaders in their organization (or leaders of smaller organizations) will be eligible for the Future Leaders category.

Nominees for our Advocates lists can be any individual working within three levels from the chief executive within large organizations or leading smaller organizations who can demonstrate they are creating a more diverse and inclusive business environment for employees of color.

Submissions can be made on behalf of a potential Role Model, but must be done with their permission.
