Honoree Dr. Margaret-Mary Wilson was named Executive Vice President and Chief Medical Officer of UnitedHealth Group in December 2021. Dr. Wilson helps advance the company’s clinical innovations and lead efforts to develop a modern, sustainable high-performing health system that addresses critical needs and opportunities around improving health equity, expanding access, lowering costs, and improving outcomes and experiences for patients, payers, and providers. She joined UnitedHealth Group in 2008 and most recently served as Associate Chief Medical Officer.

In 2021, Dr. Wilson was named one of the Top 100 most influential African Americans in Business by the National Diversity Council and one of the Top 100 elite women in 2021 by Diversity Journal. She has published more than 70 articles in peer-reviewed medical journals and textbooks.

Zander Moricz is the founder and Executive Director of the SEE Alliance–a coalition of 2,000 grassroots organizers across the United States and the central plaintiff in the Don’t Say Gay Lawsuit against Governor Ron DeSantis and the state of Florida. Due to SEE’s uniquely impactful advocacy methods, it has become one of the most well-funded youth organizations in history and is registering tens of thousands of youth voters, opening youth-led community centers in the places marginalized students are most at risk, leading mass protests, and resourcing and connecting local community action projects.

Zander started his activism with his well-known high school graduation Valedictorian speech when he was instructed 'not to say gay' but creatively replaced any reference and strong implication of him being out with his now famous references and comparisons to his signature 'curly hair.'

"The fundraiser from individual donors to corporate sponsors helps keep our LGBTQIA+ history alive and strong support for future generations," said board member Karen Kelley.
