How TIME Chose Its 2022 List of Next Generation Leaders
By Edward Felsenthal
Editor in Chief and CEO of TIME

At TIME, our eyes are on the rising stars poised to shape the future. We first joined forces with Rolex in 2014 to launch Next Generation Leaders, our series elevating young people from across fields and around the globe who are working to build a better world. This edition includes, for example, beauty entrepreneur Deepica Mutyala , who is creating better cosmetics for people of color and just partnered with Mattel to launch the first ever South Asian CEO Barbie doll; Nigerian Afrobeats star CKay; and Bolor-Erdene Battsengel, the youngest member of Mongolia's Cabinet, who is revolutionizing public services for the digital age.

Our international cover features one of these leaders, Olga Rudenko , the enterprising 33-year-old editor in chief of the Kyiv Independent, a startup that has quickly become the world's primary source for reliable English-language journalism on the war in Ukraine. As we were preparing to go to press, the Pulitzer Prize Board awarded a special citation to the "journalists of Ukraine for their courage, endurance, and commitment to truthful reporting during Vladimir Putin's ruthless invasion of their country and his propaganda war in Russia." The Independent—founded in November by journalists who left their previous employer after a scandal over editorial integrity—is a remarkable example of the bravery it takes to keep reporting on a brutal conflict that hits so close to home. TIME contributor Lisa Abend has been speaking with Rudenko since the first week of the Russian invasion, and we are thrilled to be able to bring the story of this enterprising editor and her colleagues to you.
