Recognizing Industry Success and Excellence

The RISE Awards recognize community members from across the globe, celebrating the spirit of leadership, impact, and innovation. Award candidates are reviewed by the RISE Awards Judging Panel, an MPI international volunteer committee. Selected recipients are ratified by the MPI Board of Directors and recognized at that year’s WEC.

Congratulations to the 2021 RISE Awards recipients! The 2022 RISE Awards cycle will begin in October when nominations will be accepted again.
