Rosoff 21


As we approach the 21st Anniversary of the Rosoff Awards, one thing has become crystal clear to us: The definition of diversity has changed forever.

Gone are the days of diversity being a mandate. Today’s diversity is cognitive. Smart, creative companies and their leaders see inclusion as an innovation tool. It’s a way to spark ideas, imagination and collaboration.

Millennials are demanding authenticity from the top down. The issue is no longer black and white. Real diversity is not defined by race or gender. Rather it is a vibrant mix of identities, ideas, ages, cultures and experiences.

This year, we will be honoring the visionaries. They’re the leaders who are willing to shake things up, and the organizations that embrace diversity not as a mandate, but as a movement.
