By the time you reach your 30s, you’re all grown up, but the foundation of who you are started in your childhood. That’s why this year, we’ll be showcasing the early life of our 13 Thriving Thirty-Somethings by recreating one special silly, awkward photo from your early years. Childhood will never come back, but the spirit of it can be remembered as a reminder of just how far these leaders have come.

Nominations are now being accepted for our 14th Annual of 13 Thriving 30-Somethings! If you know a SWLA individual who is deserving of this honor, nominate them today!

Thrive considers a “Thriving 30-Something” to be someone who:

  • will be 30 – 39 years old on April 1, 2024
  • excels in their career
  • is actively involved in civic/community endeavors
  • demonstrates leadership and integrity in all they do

Nominations will be accepted through Friday, February 9.
