For 15 years, we have celebrated the standard bearers of our field at this Gala. We have championed the champions of business integrity, those who lead with courage and conviction. We are thrilled to do that again this year with our 2021 Honorees, all remarkable in their own way.
But this year feels different. For the first time ever, people trust business more than any other institution to be ethical and competent. That’s borne out in the data. It’s also something we can feel in our bones. Our work matters more than ever and 2020 made that crystal clear.
