On Thursday (Mar. 24), Fortune released their annual list of the world’s most influential pioneers. This year’s list honors a several of today’s most triumphant Latinos across various sectors of society.
The coveted list features 2016 famed icons Pope Francis and Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda. The Pontiff is recognized for his “unapologetic advocacy on behalf of the poor and the environment.” Miranda’s striking message about sharing America’s ideals with all cultures has become “the most optimistic, civic-minded statement any artist is making today.”
