2020/2021 Induction & Awards Ceremony

July 22, 2021, we hosted our annual Induction & Awards Ceremony, which was postponed in 2020 due to COVID-19. At the event, we honored inductees and awardees from both 2020 and 2021. Our seven inductees, or their representatives, shared inspirational stories about how these innovators persevered to help create a better future.
