Emerging Leader Awards

The 2016 SIIA Emerging Leader Awards Sponsored by the Women’s Leadership and Networking Council

The future of our workplace is based on the strengths and talents of millennial employees; by 2050, they’ll represent 75% of our total workforce. This generation is fundamentally changing our corporate cultures and rethinking how we work. Reward and recognition are key drivers for them, and our Emerging Leader Awards celebrate their achievements.

Our 2nd annual Emerging Leader Awards were given to five rising stars, men and women 35 and under (at time of nomination), who work at Connectiv, SIPA or SIIA member companies. Finalists are identified by a panel of SIIA executives, and the final five winners selected by a jury of leading business executives.

All finalists were honored and the five winners announced at the Emerging Leader Awards Luncheon.
