On Friday, November 3, Breakthrough celebrated our annual Inspiration Awards at the Edison Ballroom in New York City. The Breakthrough Inspiration Award honors pioneering leaders who show extraordinary leadership and vision in their field while channeling their influence toward concrete, sustained, positive change in the larger world. The 2017 gala was also a celebration of the 18 years of inspired leadership by Breakthrough founder Mallika Dutt, and a festive welcome of incoming president and CEO Sohini Bhattacharya. The evening included a sit-down dinner and live auction and welcomed luminaries from the business, entertainment, and philanthropic communities.
