The Impact-Maker to Watch award is an annual distinction for those who are doing foundation work to make a positive impact in Los Angeles and will continue to do so throughout the year, with significant results. Honorees are designated by LA leaders, including members of the LA City Council and Board of Supervisors. Honorees may have a career of impact that continues to show results or may be just starting out, with equally impressive results. Honorees will be supported and promoted through various City Impact Lab programs throughout the year.”
