Quality Progress

Spotlight on Quality’s Emerging Young Professionals

QP is now accepting nominations for a feature in Quality Progress showcasing individuals under age 40 who are the talented quality leaders and trailblazers of tomorrow—individuals who are pushing boundaries and making a difference in quality. Sometimes they’re easy to recognize and sometimes they fly under the radar. If you know someone who qualifies, tell us. Or, tell us if that’s you.


Nominees must be 40 years of age or younger and display professionalism, potential and a passion for quality. ASQ membership is not required, but participation in professional associations is considered. Nominees from any discipline will be considered.


Nominees will be selected based on their professional accomplishments, demonstrated leadership and industry/community contributions.

  • Personal story: Who the nominee is, background, education. Honesty and dedication in serving the public, their employers, customers, and clients.
  • Professional achievements: How does the nominee strive to increase the competence and prestige of the quality profession?
  • Community impact: How does the nominee use his/her knowledge and skill to enhance human welfare, or give back as a volunteer?
