One thing that never gets old in media and marketing is the desire to rethink the status quo, challenge conventional wisdom and raise the bar. That impulse is evident in our second Changemakers list, where we spotlight people who are busy creating the future of media and marketing. A few themes dominated this list, including the battle against tech giants’ dominance of online advertising, solving the mystery shrouding where ad dollars are spent and putting a spotlight on bad workplace culture. Meet 50 people we are honoring for their contributions, every day, in making change a reality.

One note on our list: It’s very U.S. and U.K-centric, as we are based in New York and London. The changemakers were based on our reporting, so they focus on these markets (and Europe).
