ournalists who covered the campaign and now the White House of President Donald Trump; members of Congress who have overcome odds and stereotypes to earn their seats; entrepreneurs helping launch businesses that could change the world; activists standing up for the rights of those without a stage; chefs and artists redefining the city’s cultural landscape and doctors working to find cures for life-threatening diseases— these are just a few of the roles that the more than 300 outstanding individuals aged 40 and under on our 2017 Young & the Guest List fulfill. We chose to highlight the 42 people pictured on the following pages because they have distinguished themselves in their fields. Some are breaking barriers, like Libyan-American journalist Noor Tagouri, a Muslim, who is boldy maintaining her cultural

identity by wearing a hijab while working on stories on subcultures in America for Newsy. Dr. Kathleen Kiernan Harnden of Inova Schar Cancer Institute is working to develop new treatments for breast cancer with the ultimate goal of finding a cure. Entrepreneur Steve Salis, who co-founded &Pizza, is now setting his sights on revitalizing the city’s beloved Kramerbooks & Afterwords Cafe. Ben Wikler, the Washington director of MoveOn.org, is helping “make the voices and values of MoveOn’s millions of members impossible to ignore in Washington, D.C.” Lauren Culbertson founded Millennial Bridge Consulting “to address the growing need to engage lawmakers, especially Republicans, on issues that are important to millennials, including technology, innovation and clean energy.” No matter the job or political inclination, each and every one is a power player who deserves to be noticed.
