Erinn Corbett-Wright, Signe Espinoza, and Thomas Young are three of this year's City & State Pennsylvania Forty Under 40 honorees.

Pennsylvania is plush with young professionals working across numerous industries and the City & State Pennsylvania seeks to honor those individuals with its Forty Under 40 distinction, writes Hilary Danailova for City & State Pennsylvania

Each year, City & State honors young professionals making strides in their respective industries.

This year is no exception, and many of this year’s honorees are making a positive impact within the Philadelphia region.

There’s Erinn Corbett-Wright, senior manager of workforce development philanthropy, at Salesforce.

A native of the Mantua section of West Philadelphia, she devotes her career to the nonprofit sector to ensure others have similar opportunities she had.

“Coming from a community whose voices are not at the decision-making tables helps me to create space for those voices to participate in the conversation,” she said. 

Philadelphia native Signe Espinoza, executive director of Planned Parenthood Pennsylvania Advocates, always felt social justice was her calling.

As a new parent, she brings her personal experiences to her work.

Thomas Young recently became the first Black president and CEO of the World Trade Center in Philadelphia.

He, too, uses his background — as a professional basketball player — in his approach.

“It’s all a team effort… you can’t do it alone,” he said.
