The International Center is a catalyst to inform, convene and connect public, private and civic global objectives in Indiana.
The International Center’s Global Impression Award, now in its second year, celebrates emerging Indiana leaders whose work impacts the state on a global scale. This year’s honoree will be announced at the International Citizen of the Year Award dinner on October 8 at the Indiana Roof Ballroom. Michael Crowther, retiring CEO of the Indianapolis Zoo and founder of the world-acclaimed Indianapolis Prize for animal conservation, is this year’s honoree.

“Our community has been blessed with a staggering number of incredible young leaders, many of whom we, unfortunately, don’t hear about on a daily basis,” said Shash Goyal, Senior Director of Technology Operations for the Salesforce Marketing Cloud and member of the Global Impression Award committee. “Recognizing the strides they’re making in our state and around the globe is a small but wonderful way to say ‘thank you’ and to give them the encouragement they need to keep going.”

Nominations will be accepted May 15 through July 15. Nominees should be 42 years old or younger on October 8. The nomination form should include a current resume and/or CV and/or public LinkedIn profile. Press clippings and letters of recommendation if available may also be submitted. The three award finalists will be notified in August and invited to attend the award dinner as guests of The International Center.
The International Center will be exhibiting at IndyHub’s IndyVolved 14 presented by Indianapolis Power & Light Company on June 13! More than 100 non-profits and civic organizations, including The International Center, will be there looking to meet and connect with Indy’s 20- and 30-somethings.

The Center will be present to share volunteer, event, and award opportunities for Indy’s young professionals. Visit the IndyHub website to learn more and sign up.
With technology as a top-of-mind subject among stakeholders, The International Center is pleased to partner with Cybertech Midwest, the region's largest cyber event.
