Special Event

Meet the 2018 Asia Game Changers featuring Indra Nooyi and the survivors of the Thai Cave Rescue

It’s one of the highlights of the Asia Society calendar: The day we honor the annual class of Asia Game Changers — a remarkable group of leaders who are transforming Asia and the world. Their leadership has contributed towards creating a world in which peace, equality, sustainability, and selfless acts have the roots to flourish. Before the awards dinner, join us for a special preview to meet some of the remarkable members of the "class of 2018" and hear their incredible journeys of breaking barriers, defining courage, and making miracles.

Among our Game Changers this year are some incredible game-changing women. Their fearless leadership has shattered countless stereotypes and serves as a powerful inspiration to girls and women around the world. 

Indra Nooyi is Asia Society's Asia Game Changer of the Year

This year, be in the room with trailblazing Asia Game Changer of the Year Indra Nooyi, an exemplary figure of leadership and perseverance, who leads this group of inspirational Asia Game Changers.


The program will also feature members of the Thai soccer team rescued from the Tham Luang caves. In their first-ever visit to the United States, Wild Boars coach Ekkapol Chantawong, player Adul Sam-on, and Narongsak Osatanakorn, the governor of Chiang Rai province who supervised the rescue, will share their incredible stories.

Also with us:

The Afghan Girls Robotics Team who overcame obstacles and heartbreak — and emerged as champions for girls all over the world.

Dr. Munjed Al Muderis whose courage led to his freedom — and whose groundbreaking work has given patients new hope.

Mira Rai who has defied steep odds, shattered records, and inspired — and helped — millions of girls.

The Syrian White Helmets who have shown game-changing, life-saving heroism — in the world’s most unforgiving and desperate places.

Wang Shi who has championed the environment — from the cities of China to the farthest reaches of the planet.

The Asia Game Changer Awards, launched by the Asia Society in 2014, are designed to fill a vital gap, identifying and honoring true leaders who are making a positive contribution to the future of Asia. These awards are bestowed annually to individuals, organizations, and movements that have inspired, enlightened, and shown true leadership in areas that reflect Asia Society’s core pillars of policy and business, arts and culture, and education.
