Ahead of announcing this year’s nominees, we spoke with past Emerging Leaders Awards (ELAs) winners to get their top ten “Pearls of Wisdom” for other up-and-coming leaders in the industry. Take it all in – these are proven pieces of advice from women who have put their own words into action!

As a bonus piece of advice, Tamara Moore leaves us with a final pearl of wisdom for this year’s honorees: “This is an honor worth bragging about. Take time to announce your recognition to the world and bask in the congratulatory well-wishes.” You’ve put in the effort year-round to get this far – take this time to celebrate yourself and your fellow honorees!
Don’t miss out on your chance to celebrate at this year’s event on Tuesday, June 18!
