About the Northeast Ohio Movers and Shakers Award

Our Story

The Cleveland Professional 20/30 Club, the longest-running young professional group in Northeast Ohio, announces the Movers & Shakers Awards. The awards recognize young leaders that have a record of excellence in their work, civic engagement and philanthropic efforts. These individuals give selflessly for their community, are involved in working with local non-profits as volunteers or board members, or are up-and-coming leaders in their community or place of business.

The awards celebrate the success of young professionals in Cleveland while showcasing their talents to the entire Cleveland community. The awards and the ceremony are an opportunity to reflect on the excellent examples set by some of our most promising young leaders. We recognize professionals who are in for-profit, non-profit, government, and military, from anywhere in Northeast Ohio – in short, the award is open to all.

Over the past fifteen years, The Club has recognized more than 300 young professionals through the Movers & Shakers Awards. We’re proud to bring this diverse and deserving group together to honor their achievements and help connect young professionals and others with the region’s current and future leaders.
