As we continue our roll out for the 10th anniversary of The Root 100, we’re giving a sneak peek at the top three honorees in eight categories—arts, business, community, entertainment, media, politics, sports and STEM (science, technology, engineering and math)—before we unveil the full list on Thursday.
On Monday, we recognized the top honorees in the fields of entertainment, arts, and sports. If you missed that post, you can check it out here.
Today, we’re honoring the top leaders in STEM and business. These savvy entrepreneurs and tech innovators are the epitomai of black excellence. Congratulations on making The Root 100!
