HWA is proud to represent TIME 100 Most Influential People Honorees Michael B. Jordan and Catherine Coleman Flowers
Each year TIME honors 100 public figures for its iconic list, celebrating individuals who wield their influence to drive positive action toward a better world. HWA speakers are present on the 2023 list: acclaimed actor and director MICHAEL B. JORDAN and globally recognized environmental activist CATHERINE COLEMAN FLOWERS.
Director Ryan Coolger recalls the hard work Michael B. Jordan put into his 2023 directorial debut, Creed III: “It’s like climbing a mountain summit through enemy territory with your heart exposed. But I knew Mike had it in him. Because over that quarter-century of work, nothing was given to him. Everything was earned. And I strongly believe that his best work is still to come.”
Founder of the Equal Justice Initiative, Bryan Stevenson muses about Coleman Flowers’s work to gain environmental justice for her Alabama hometown and beyond: “In August 2022, in part because of Catherine’s work, the Biden Administration chose Lowndes [county] as the place to announce the EPA would devote $50 billion to wastewater issues with a focus on underserved communities. She has compelled leaders to address a crisis aggravated by bigotry and poverty, all while keeping her feet firmly planted in the soil of her homeland.”
Jordan and Flowers continue to inspire people around the world and are highly sought after for their insightful talks, moderated Q&A’s, and engaging keynotes for audiences of all kinds.
