The Asian Leaders Worth Watching awards recognize the achievements of Asian Leaders at work, in the marketplace, and in communities across the globe. In addition to their talent and skill, these outstanding leaders demonstrate a dedication to excellence in everything they do, a willingness to mentor and support the next generation of leaders, and a commitment to the larger community.
Each Asian Leader Worth Watching Award recipient’s abilities, commitment, and achievements will be showcased in Profiles in Diversity Journal’s spring 2021 issue. And Award recipients will share their experiences, opinions, and words of advice with our readers, many of whom may become tomorrow’s Asian Leaders Worth Watching.
