New Leaders: 40 Under 40 Winners Share Insights With Care2

New Leaders: 40 Under 40 Winners Share Insights With Care2

Young leaders won special recognition in June, when the New Leaders Council named their their annual 40 under 40 award winners–a group exemplifying “the spirit of political entrepreneurship.” This year’s award winners include nonprofit executives, elected officials, professors, venture capitalists, doctors, lawyers, activists and more–all under the age of 40. These young leaders have taken on incredible challenges across the US–from combatting sexual harassment to empowering students with learning disabilities, from running for office to improving our environment. They are an inspiration for action, initiative and creative spirit.

Over the next weeks, we’ll be posting perspectives from these bright leaders and will add the links below.  If you like, share these inspiring words, jump into the conversation in the comments, and even meet them in your city when they receive their awards. New Leaders Council will honor the awardees in 13 cities throughout July. Find out more about how you can meet the winners in your city.
