We're Unveiling The Gen.T List 2020 In September. Here's Everything We Can Reveal So Far
The year so far has been tumultuous, uncertain—even scary. Now, more than ever, is the time for the next generation to take charge and codify the next normal.
The Gen.T List 2020 will recognise 400 Leaders of Tomorrow who are doing just that—shaping Asia's future and establishing a new way forward.
Back for a fifth year, the list will once again cover 19 industry categories and eight countries and territories across Asia.
We will unveil the Gen.T List 2020 at launch events across the region in late September and early October, inaugurating the 400 honourees into our community and giving them a platform to connect for the first time.
Beyond that, most details on the Gen.T List are still a closely guarded secret. Here's what we can reveal right now.
The number of nominees on our long list before we started narrowing it down. To create the long list, we conduct market research throughout the year and consult our panel of industry experts, The Tribe. We also host a public nomination form, where anyone can nominate themselves to be considered for the long list.
The number of industry heavyweights on our expert panel, The Tribe. Members of The Tribe nominate names for the list. We also conduct phone interviews with Tribe members to get their take on nominees we are considering in their industry. Once the list is revealed, Tribe members offer a source of inspiration and mentorship for honourees.
The average age of an honouree on the Gen.T List 2020. An individual must be under 40 on September 1 to qualify for the list.
The number of months it takes to go from the first long list to the final names. In total, we spent 196 hours in vetting meetings across Asia to debate the merits of each candidate.
The percentage of women on the Gen.T List 2020, an increase of 2 percent on last year. Our aim is to achieve a fifty-fifty split by 2023 at the latest.
The number of past Gen.T honourees on this year's list, meaning 395 people are new names to the Gen.T community. A key criteria of the list is achievement in the last 18 months. Only those who have done something truly special since their last inclusion on the list are repeated.
The number of honourees in our most populous category, Technology. The Gen.T List has 19 categories in total. The Healthcare & Sciences category has significantly increased in size this year, along with Philanthropy & Charity, reflecting the state of the world in 2020. Categorisations are currently being finalised and may change slightly before publication.
