Every year, we look forward to connecting with our WWPR community to highlight and celebrate the rising stars among us. With the ongoing concerns for health and safety posed by COVID-19, we’ve made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Emerging Leaders Awards.

This was a tough, but necessary, decision to make. We remain committed to elevating talented young voices in our field and look forward to doing just that in 2021. To help facilitate this, we are increasing the maximum age from 35 to 36 to make sure women who could have been recognized this year will still have the opportunity. We are also exploring other ways to lift up important voices on our digital platforms, so please stay tuned. 

Your involvement in WWPR and your support for our emerging leaders is so important to us. We appreciate your understanding and continued involvement and enthusiasm! Make sure to follow us on social media and stay in touch. Your questions are welcome and should be directed to Sarah and Lorelle at ela@wwpr.org.

Stay tuned for news on how Woman of the Year will evolve for 2020.
