Digiday Media releases its first-ever list of Digiday Changemakers

New York, NY — Today, Digiday Media released the Digiday Changemakers list, recognizing 50 individuals changing the business of digital media and marketing.

This group – 26 women, 23 men and one anonymous collective – have been nominated by Digiday’s editorial team for their contributions to the changing business of digital media and marketing. These 50 individuals have created better ads, proven diversity is not a passing fad and made sustainable fashion chic, among many other diverse achievements. Honorees include Lauren Duca, columnist; Melissa Bell, publisher of Vox; advertising collective Sleeping Giants; Mary Dillon, CEO of Ulta Beauty; Zach Seward of Quartz; Eric Korsh, president of Mashable; and much more.

“We thought of Changemakers as a way to recognize those making change happen in media and marketing, day in and day out,” said Brian Morrissey, president and editor-in-chief of Digiday. “Our editorial team sought to find a diverse group of people dedicated to moving the industry forward in many different ways.”

The Digiday Changemakers is the first people-based list released by the company since its inception. Digiday’s sister site Glossy will release a Glossy 50 this fall, recognizing the 50 men and women making change in fashion, luxury, beauty and retail.

The Digiday Changemakers will be honored at an invitation-only event in New York City on June 7.
