Crain’s New York Business: Dr. Jocelynne Rainey Named to Crain’s Notable Black Leaders List (2023)
In celebration of Black professionals, Crain’s is highlighting many of the pacesetters uplifting New York.
Black New Yorkers make up nearly a quarter of the city’s population and can be found across its most vaunted industries. Crain’s sought to recognize exemplars of leadership not only at the office but also in their communities in this first edition of Notables for 2023.
The 50 professionals who made the grade hail from a broad range of backgrounds and occupations. When you dive into the list, you will find individuals who have risen to the heights of medicine, law, finance, real estate, technology and communications, among other fields. You will also discover people who have founded nonprofits, supported young people affected by the criminal-justice system, promoted minority-owned businesses, opened doors to opportunity and pushed for health equity.
To qualify, candidates had to self-identify as Black and must have held a leadership position in the New York metropolitan area for at least five years.
