NRF Foundation Honors | Jan. 12, 2020  

A celebration of the next generation of retail talent, the inspiring leaders on The List of People Shaping Retail’s Future and the amazing career of The Visionary.

Retail is filled with passionate, successful and influential people. Our industry has the power to spark impressive change and build extraordinary careers.

The NRF Foundation Honors is one of the best ways for retail executives to give back to the industry that has given so much to them. Since 2015, the event has raised more than $10 million to support the NRF Foundation’s philanthropic efforts, including college scholarships, educational programming and RISE Up (Retail Industry Skills and Education) training and credentials.

The NRF Foundation is proud to have several visionary leaders join us on the Host Committee to support the next generation of retail talent.
