Young Leaders Connect is an annual conclave where young change makers and leaders from diverse fields like business, politics, academia, sports, music and culture come together, put their heads and hearts together to plan where they would like to see India vis-à-vis Northeast in the future, plan a roadmap, and strategize on interventions at the grassroots and policy level.

Young Leaders Connect, which began in Kohima in 2011, has been organising the Young Leaders Connect Conclave over the past few years. This year, Leaders Connect is honoring people who in their specific line of work excellently continued to inspire leadership, instill hope and faith for the society amidst the pandemic situation.
