2019 Emerging Leaders Awards (ELA)

WWPR presents:

"2019 Emerging Leaders Awards (ELA)"

This year we are celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Emerging Leaders Awards (ELA)!

The ELAs recognize rising stars in the communications industry, and showcase the field’s most talented young women (ages 25-35) for their professional accomplishments. These honorees implement innovative communications strategies that go above and beyond – achieving impressive and extraordinary results. During this year’s event we will hear from past ELA winners as they share their Pearls of Wisdom with us.
