Here's Everything You Need To Know About The Gen.T x Credit Suisse Social Impact Awards
Generation T and Credit Suisse have teamed up to launch the first-ever Social Impact Awards.
The Awards will commemorate 10 honourees from the Gen.T List 2019, recognising young leaders who have made significant contributions to Asian society in the fields of social impact, sustainability or innovation.
Watch the video to see Dr Francois Monnet—Head of Private Banking for North Asia and Chief Executive Hong Kong Branch, Credit Suisse—introduce the mission behind the awards.
"This is an award to acknowledge things which are core to the competencies and values of Credit Suisse as well as, of course, Gen.T," says Monnet. "We are looking for movers and shakers who actually can have a disruptive view of the world and contribute to change of societies."
"I believe they have to be totally aspirational, but also bold and determined," says Monnet of the quality he believes all the Social Impact awardees must possess. "These social winners do care about the world they live in, and the people they meet. And caring is beautiful. Caring is self-rewarding."
The winners of the Awards will be announced at the inaugural Gen.T Asia Summit, on April 3-4, 2020 in Hong Kong.
Tickets are still available for the Gen.T Asia Summit. Register via the official website.
