The annual showcase of the most diverse and impactful young professionals across the Philadelphia region. With Philadelphia’s demographic breakdown — more than 42% African American, more than 14% Latino and more than 7% Asian — the goal of the event is to showcase and reflect that diversity through the nominations.
The 40 Under Forty will be chosen by independent judges who bring broad experience in entrepreneurship, leadership, and civic engagement.
