Nominees will be evaluated on their professional achievements and influence within their industries. Board affiliations, civic engagement and other leadership roles will also be taken into consideration.

In addition, a Game Changer award will be conferred upon an individual(s) (regardless of ethnicity) or organization(s)  — that has made a significant contribution to the digital media and high-tech sectors through technological advancements, outstanding leadership in advancing diversity and or notable corporate/organization management.
