Civic engagement presents us with an opportunity to transform our communities. Through active participation, the civically active can identify and address challenges that are specific to our city. As it is Insider Louisville’s mission to provide quality information to help keep people informed and engaged, we wanted to shine the spotlight on those influencers who share our mission.

In this report, Insider Louisville’s Top 100: Change-makers and groundbreakers, we recognize the civic-minded people in our city who share a responsibility for shaping our society for the better.

Using our Insider 502 platform, our team of researchers curates and mines data from publicly available business intelligence resources to identify those who are making a significant mark. Founding a company and getting involved in community endeavors are factors that weigh heavily on an individual’s ranking. Other variables considered range from leadership roles to board affiliations to social media presence.
