Every day, Americans are making choices in their personal and professional lives that affect the problems we are trying to solve. Some are famous politicians or chief executives whom you already know, but scores of others make their choices mostly below the media radar. The lack of a spotlight does not diminish their bold choices that in big ways and small support American values of political freedom, diversity, and innovation while helping to make our country and our world a better place to live for everyone.

The American Leader is proud to showcase these leaders and the choices they’ve made. Together, their stories present a glimpse of the breadth of action and impacts that a diverse range of courageous and independent-minded people can take to solve our common problems. We hope they may inspire you to be bold in your own way.
