Meet the 2018 Asia Game Changers: Featuring Indra Nooyi and Survivors of the Thai Cave RescueVIEW EVENT DETAILS
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.
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.
