Join Madison Magazine as we honor three organizations and two individuals for their work in creating exceptional opportunities for underserved populations as recipients of the seventh annual M List awards.

This year’s honorees, selected for their innovative contributions to diversity and inclusion are:

Harambee Village is an organization focused on black women’s health, especially young mothers. Harambee Village seeks to lower black infant mortality by providing specialized care to all mothers, especially women of color, and by using grassroots connections and community partnerships to offer a variety of equitable resources.


The Loka Initiative, which is housed within the Center for Healthy Minds at the University of Wisconsin–Madison, supports faith-led environmental efforts locally and around the world through collaborations with faith leaders and religious institutions on environmental protection, sustainable development and global health issues. Dekila Chungyalpa, director of the Loka Initiative, organized a global conference last month and pushed for inclusion of indigenous women and Wisconsin tribal leaders at this worldwide conference.


Maydm is a local nonprofit that provides girls and youth of color with skill-based training for the technology sector. Winnie Karanja, founder and executive director of Maydm, started the organization because women of color are vastly underrepresented in the areas of science, technology, engineering and math. So efforts by Madym — driven by Karanja — are vital in providing a path for the organization’s students to become professionals of color in the STEM fields.


Shiva Bidar is chief diversity officer at UW Health and president of the Madison Common Council. Chosen as an M List recipient by Madison365, Bidar has influenced both UW Health and the city of Madison to get money into the hands of organizations that are doing good work.


Annik Dupaty is director of events and volunteers at the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art. Dupaty has been influential in the museum’s increase in events that represent and celebrate diverse communities and perspectives, such as developing and launching the Emerge block as an addition to Art Fair on the Square to give exposure to early-career artists and those representing diverse communities.
