Join us for GenNext 2021: The Future Leaders Forum

On December 9th, Progressive Grocer will host a first-of-its-kind virtual event called The Future Leaders Forum.  At this unique event we will honor this year’s group of GenNext award winners and share forward-looking leadership insights with the industry at large. The goal: To inspire and equip the next generation of retail industry leaders with fresh perspectives and insights to improve personal performance and organizational success.

What Are The GenNext Awards?

Progressive Grocer created the GenNext Awards to recognize achievement and the potential for future success among individuals under the age of 40 at grocery retailers, suppliers and service provider companies.  We know that talent has always been important in retail, but the pandemic heightened the need for leaders with diverse skill sets to manage familiar and new challenges.  During a year in which the grocery industry remained highly disrupted, GenNexters are the innovators, disruptors and difference-makers who had an impact on their organization, the industry, colleagues, and communities.


Why The Future Leaders Forum?

GenNext is more than just another recognition program for those under a certain age. We want to do more, which is why The Future Leaders Forum features unique and diverse perspectives on today’s most challenging industry issues, but also new areas that aspiring leaders will need to master to move the industry forward.
