On Wednesday, April 24, 2019, Breakthrough will celebrate our annual Inspiration Awards in New York City.

The evening includes a sit-down dinner and live auction and welcomes luminaries from the business, entertainment, and philanthropic communities.

About the Breakthrough Inspiration Awards


The Breakthrough Inspiration Awards convene, inspire, engage, and enable leaders for change—from CEOs who change what business stands for to teens who rally the next generation for human rights—in our own worlds and beyond.


We will raise the resources needed for Breakthrough to continue doing what we do: breaking down barriers and building up our shared humanity. We will draw energy for our next challenges from celebrating our shared success.


Our benefit dinner brings together more than 400 leaders and social change actors—representing global media, financial services, philanthropy, racial justice, and women’s and human rights—to drive and celebrate change.
