2023 Winners

Celebrating DEI
Advancement

Faena Forum | Miami, Florida
March 27, 2024

Impact Awards

World 50 Group’s 2023 Inclusion & Diversity Impact report revealed an encouraging trend: Nearly three-quarters of respondents expressed that momentum behind their DEI initiatives had either increased or dramatically increased in the past 12 months. While DEI has become a critical priority for businesses today, the companies that are successfully turning DEI conversations into meaningful—and measurable—action are the ones that are empowering the right voices along the way.

We are dedicated to continuing this momentum through the 2024 I&D Impact Awards, spotlighting outstanding organizations, leaders, and teams who are trailblazing systemic and scalable solutions for more equity within the workplace.

“We have made progress, but we are not done. We need to continue to make DEI a focus. This is a business imperative.”

– Eliana Nunez

Vice President, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, The Cigna Group
