In partnership with Chevrolet and featuring keynote conversations by Maya Rudolph and Keke Palmer, the event will honor such luminaries as Debra Messing, Marsai Martin, Jessica Alba and Paris Hilton, among many others.

Create & Cultivate, the women-led media platform, has revealed the list of honorees for its fifth annual Create & Cultivate 100 List in partnership with Chevrolet.

As part of today’s news, C&C has offered up details on its virtual gala — scheduled for Jan. 28 and replacing the typical in-person event due to the COVID-19 pandemic — that will feature keynote conversations with Maya Rudolph and Keke Palmer. Attendance is free with RSVP and guests will have access to red carpet interviews, special moments from Chevrolet, keynotes conversations and some "exciting surprises."

About that list. The 100 women selected have been singled out for "making moves and redefining the future of the workplace and the world" across 10 categories including entertainment, beauty, fashion, small business, entrepreneur, food, health and wellness, "Find New Roads," content creator, and music.

Among those who made the cut are Marsai Martin, Debra Messing, Alyson Stoner, Stephanie Shepherd, Aluna, Epic Records CEO Sylvia Rhone, Jessica Alba, Paris Hilton, Jasmine Sanders, Emily Ratajkowski, Venus Williams, Amirah Kassem, Tabitha Brown, Jamie Kern Lima, Blair Imani, and many others. As a sign of the times, six women on the front line at UCLA Medical Center will be honored in the "Find New Roads" category as a testament to healthcare workers. The full list can be found here.

C&C founder and CEO Jaclyn Johnson said she’s thrilled to be partnered with Chevrolet on another installment of the event. "Our [Chevrolet, General Motors and Create & Cultivate] continual commitment to advancing and supporting womxn in the workplace shines through our work and those honored on this year’s list, and we’re excited to extend the celebration through the first-ever CC100 Digital Gala."

Added Chevy’s Jaclyn McQuaid, executive chief engineer of full-size trucks: "It is a privilege to be representing Chevrolet in this year’s Create & Cultivate 100 alongside so many exceptionally talented, creative and driven womxn. The women on this list are setting an example for future generations, proving that womxn can push boundaries, Find New Roads and change the world."
