 The Front Runner Award
Honors a career-bold YP who is a driver, pacesetter and pioneer in his or her industry. A Front Runner’s approach to leadership is one that draws strength from his or her core values, self-awareness and the ability to ignite the potential in others. Front Runners put in the long hours, take on new challenges and persevere when told it couldn’t be done. Their drive and passion for their work fuels their desire to leave an impactful legacy.

The Change Agent Award

Honors a YP who is imaginative in his or her approach to identifying new avenues of thought and action. Change Agents think beyond the limits of convention, challenge the status quo and aren’t afraid to start difficult conversations that address a need or opportunity. They embrace innovation and creativity as drivers to making positive changes for the betterment of their teams and their organizations. No idea is too big or too small to test, because failing is merely a learning opportunity, not a fault.
