Calling all career bold YPs and the organizations that support them.

The 2019 HYPE Icons Awards will take place on April 11, 2019!

The Icons is HYPE’s Emerging Leader Awards, recognizing YPs and the companies that support them for success in their early careers.

*Please note there is an age cutoff for Individual Icons Awards. The nominee must not have turned 36 before the date of the Icons (April 11th). There is no age restriction for the Mentor Award, however*
This award honors a YP who is imaginative in his or her approach to identifying new avenues of thought and action. Innovators 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.

IDEAL CANDIDATES:
Innovators have made clear and direct impact on their companies and industries. Perhaps they’ve started a company to meet a need, or have brought about fundamental, systemic change to their organization through the use of technology or unconventional strategy. Innovators not only reject the status quo, but create their own, always searching for ways for themselves and their teams to work smarter and shine brighter.

AWARD CATEGORIES

There are two categories: Business & Non-Profit

Congratulations to the 2018 WINNER:

This 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 this work fuels their desire to leave an impactful legacy.

IDEAL CANDIDATES:
Front Runners are making a name for themselves through hard work, active engagement and great results. Not afraid to take calculated risks, they exercise strategic judgment in supporting the mission of their teams and their organizations. They may have demonstrated excellent leadership in early management roles, blown sales goals out of the water, or expanded business in a big way.
