Profiles in Diversity Journal 2021 Native American Indigenous Leaders Worth Watching International Award


For more than two decades, Profiles in Diversity Journal has showcased and honored individuals who have blazed new trails, led the way, mentored others, advanced diversity and inclusion in the workplace and the community, and excelled in their chosen fields. In the upcoming summer issue of the magazine, PDJ will recognize Indigenous Leaders with our first-ever Native American/Indigenous Leaders Worth Watching Awards.

Profiles in Diversity Journal is proud to honor these people who contribute to the success of your organization. We invite you to join us in this endeavor by nominating a member of your team who, through their advocacy, perseverance, legacy, or professional achievements, has addressed racism and bias to become an Native American/Indigenous Leader Worth Watching.

Your nomination of one or multiple Native American/Indigenous Leaders Worth Watching affords you an important opportunity to recognize and showcase the talents, ambition, and achievements of these exceptional people, while also voicing your support of a truly diverse and inclusive workplace.

Who Are these Outstanding Individuals?

Nominated by employers or colleagues, Native American/Indigenous Leaders Worth Watching are confident, determined, high-performing, purpose-driven professionals who create value for their coworkers, customers, community, and of course the organizations where they contribute their talents.

Throughout its history, Profiles in Diversity Journal has recognized thousands of men and women from around the world who are making a difference. The profiles that will appear in this important edition will recognize and celebrate our inaugural group of Native American/Indigenous Leaders Worth Watching awardees, and enhance the reputations of the organizations that encourage, empower, and support these trailblazing individuals.
