The 2016 Top Charity CEOs on Twitter have been named

For the last few years, Social CEOs has been highlighting excellent Social Sector CEOs using Twitter, and we’re happy to note that this year’s list is out. Of course we were inspired to follow all of these inspirational leaders on Twitter, and made a Twitter list to make it easy for you to do the same.

One thing we noticed on this list, however, is a lack of representation right here in the US and Canada! We’ve added some of the active US CEOs and rising stars from the social sector to the Twitter list linked above, and thought we’d call them out here so you can see what they are all about.
