|This year in our quality universe, we discovered and assembled a collection with undeniable star power quickly reaching new heights: 40 quality professionals under the age of 40 making a difference. The stars in our group come from all corners of the world and all sorts of professions and industries touching the quality discipline. With diverse backgrounds and impressive professional achievements, there’s no doubt this group has high potential to soar to new heights in the years to come.
This is the third time QP has recognized a class of young, standout quality professionals. After previous installments—first in November 2011 (“40 New Voices of Quality”) and five years later in November 2016 (“Fresh Faces”)—it only made sense to set up our telescopes and do some searching this year.
In a nice bit of serendipity, this special feature aligns with World Quality Month—a time to showcase the quality profession and quality’s impact on organizations and communities throughout the world—as well as ASQ’s renewed efforts to connect and engage with the next generation of bright minds in the quality profession.
