In addition to honoring some well-deserved pioneers, the goal is the do our part in unifying the industry. This is not just a NY thing; we have nominees being honored from different parts of the world. To be able to gather individuals in our industry that we may have heard about but never met, or even never heard at all of is inspiring to me.”
