Embrace. Embolden. Empower.

On May 20, WWPR named the 2021 Emerging Leaders Awards winners at an all-virtual awards ceremony where Dr. LeMia Jenkins Thompson, Global Head of Communications for Pinterest, gave the keynote address. A pre-event networking hour preceded the event where attendees were able to network with industry colleagues while learning to build a terrarium.
