The International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE) is pivoting the Young Leaders Under 30 program to an online format for 2021. The program will be called IPPE Linked In With Tomorrow’s Leaders and is designed to recognize leadership qualities in young professionals. The program’s goal is to engage and invest in the next generation of young professionals, between the ages of 21 and 29, who work for companies directly involved in the production and processing of poultry and meat or in the production of animal food.

The program will include participation in a LinkedIn group and online meet-ups with key industry leaders to further their leadership development. Selected recipients will receive a plaque. Recipients will also receive access to education to further training in their respective industry through automatic registration of all IPPE complimentary education programs and one paid program, pending approval, that will be offered during IPPE Digital Week: Jan. 25 – 29, 2021.
