The Baltimore Banner selected 13 community leaders as its 2024 Emerging Leaders honorees, who will be recognized at an event in May.

This is the second year for the event, which launched in 2023 to shine a light on the next generation of leaders under the age of 40 who are making an impact in their community. The honorees were determined to be rising leaders driving change throughout Maryland and have shown a personal commitment to serving the community.

All honorees were nominated by colleagues, leaders or peers. A selection committee made up of members from The Baltimore Banner along with a group of leaders in the community vetted the nominations and selected the final list of honorees.

Here are the honorees:
