Congratulations E-50 Members


Nominating Individuals

Called the ‘Enlightened 50’, or E-50, members are nominated by the public. Each of the nominees then selects five individuals who they feel most meet the criteria, building a network of innovators committed to the common good. The E-50 includes recognized business and religious leaders, entrepreneurs, academics, community volunteers, leaders of nonprofits, and elected officials who:

  • pioneer innovative and sustainable approaches to the critical issues facing Utah
  • demonstrate a commitment to community engagement
  • make a profound mark on Utah’s quality of life
  • value collaboration, entrepreneurship and creativity
