As we head into Power List season (keep an eye out this Friday for the big news!), it’s important to recognize that heroes come in many forms. From outspoken advocates to behind-the-scenes movers and shakers, everyone plays their part. But some face greater challenges than others.

Yours, Michael Schubert, Editor
