Leadership Awards

The SASE Leadership Awards are SASE’s most prestigious level of awards and were established to celebrate technical accomplishments and advancements in the fields of science, engineering and technology. These competitive awards recognize exemplary leadership in the SASE community, including volunteerism.

Achievement Awards

The SASE Achievement awards are recognitions that organizations utilize to highlight top talent within each of their own organizations. Organizations nominate individuals that meet or exceed the criteria in one of five categories. Each organization is limited to a maximum of five Achievement Award nominations. Nominations may be in one, two, or all categories but may not exceed five in total.

SASEsalutes Military Service Awards

The SASEsalutes Military Service Awards honor those of Asian heritage who serve or have served in our country’s military. The program aims to support the transition of veterans entering the civilian workforce, acknowledge the achievements of Asian-heritage Americans within the U.S. Military, and build awareness about the merits and benefits of a military career within the Asian community.

Each recipient will be recognized at SASE Connect, the SASE National Convention in Boston, October 9 - 11, 2024.
