100 Most Impactful 2022 Change Makers: Ghana Announced

24th Apr 2023 - Wdordoe


Humanitarian Awards Global Announce it’s annual publication on 100 Most Impactful 2022 Change Makers: Ghana.


Humanitarian Awards Global’ has launched its periodic publication on the 100 Most Impactful Change Makers for the year 2022.

The idea behind this annual publication is to appreciate and inspire change makers in Ghana who are passionate about changing lives and challenging the status quo in their fields.


The publication highlights and celebrates the remarkable accomplishments of the selected 100 Most Impactful Change Makers. 


The carefully selected unranked list features Ghanaians drawn from various sectors of the country; on profit, business, politics, media, science, sports and public life, who are challenging the status quo and creating a trail on terrain where there was none. 

These change makers are reshaping history, closing inequality gabs, grooming leaders and pioneering new avenues of wealth creation and in turn, lifting others with them. 


The approach used in selecting these people cuts across nomination, extensive background checks on impact activities and board justifications to short-list the top 100 of year under review.

Some of the metric used in short listing are leadership drive, influence, consistency, and most importantly, community and social impact.


On yearly basis, some previously mentioned change makers get to be on the list if they still are justified based on the criteria and metrics used, and new names of change makers also emerge.


The publication provides these agents of change with an important occasion to be inspired and to keep working toward their passion of changing lives and impacting their space.


Among the notable people who are featured, are but not limited to; Diplomats, Board Chairs, CEOs, Entrepreneurs, Corporate leaders, Scholars, Chancellors, Politicians, and Philanthropists.


Congratulations to all Change makers in The 2022 :100 Most Impacted Change makers
