The public is encouraged to nominate trailblazers from their communities in categories ranging from social activism, business, professional service to media, and entertainment for the year in view.

The 13th edition will have a two-day activity focused on engaging youth in different industries from women conferences to technology and innovation. This will further continue to create a strong network for youth to support one another in the leadership space.
