Today, TIME reveals the 2023 TIME100 Next list recognizing the 100 emerging leaders from around the world who are shaping the future and defining the next generation of leadership.
The 2023 TIME100 Next issue has three worldwide covers, each highlighting a member of the list: singer-songwriter Kelsea Ballerini, football quarterback Jalen Hurts and chef Mory Sacko.
Like the annual list of the TIME100 most influential people in the world, the TIME100 Next list features surprising pairings of the list members and guest contributors TIME selects to write about them. The third annual list includes: Emma D’Arcy on Bella Ramsey, Elliot Page on Mae Martin, Ziwe on Ice Spice, Shania Twain on Kelsea Ballerini, John Legend on Metro Boomin, Peyton Manning on Jalen Hurts, Ashley Graham on Hailey Bieber, Aurora James on Everette Taylor, Nancy Pelosi on Shalanda Young, Chelsea Handler on Alexandra Cooper, Melinda French Gates on David Moinina Sengeh, and more.
“The honorees on this year’s TIME100 Next are rising stars whose work and determination is creating a better future,” said TIME Chief Executive Officer Jessica Sibley. “We’re looking forward to celebrating these extraordinary individuals at our upcoming TIME100 Next event in October.”
Of the rising stars and changemakers on the 2023 list, TIME Editor-in-Chief Sam Jacobs writes: “With efforts like Person of the Year and TIME100, we have used the power of our spotlight to draw attention to those who have achieved peak influence in their fields. A great magazine and a great media company should not just reflect the present, it should push us forward, showing what is possible as well as what society’s future and future leaders will look like. That is our ambition for TIME100 Next.” https://bit.ly/3EDItaO
