As we were curating the 2021 OBVIOUS Visionaries to Watch list, we had to ask ourselves if there was an underlying theme to consider with this year’s candidates. We quickly realized that a theme was happening before our eyes without even trying.
The submissions we received centered around people who were not only disruptors but also advocates of creating equity and leveling playing fields across varying spaces of business, society, and more. It was apparent then that that was the direction this year’s honorees were going to go in.
The 2021 Visionaries to Watch honorees show us how important it is to create fair and impartial movements across industries of all kinds because ultimately, a fair society would see a remarkable and progressive impact on the world as we know it.
These Visionaries are navigating their platforms and careers in a way that drives and motivates people to operate outside of their perspective and consider viewing the world through multiple lenses.
We’re also very excited about this year’s list because the varying industries our honorees belong to just further proof that you can make a true impact and positive changes to society no matter where you find your passion.
