Meet the Asia Game Changers 2019

The day we honor the annual class of Asia Game Changers is one of the highlights of the Asia Society calendar. This year’s awards recognize and honor an inspiring group of path-breaking women who are making a transformative impact in Asia and beyond. Before the awards dinner, join us for a special preview event with our remarkable honorees, who are changing the rules and challenging all of us to follow their lead. 

The 2019 Asia Game Changers are experts and pioneers in their fields, whether it be the arts, business, government, sports, tech, or law enforcement. They have championed gender equality while making enormous contributions to society and social structures within their home countries. This event features illuminating conversation with the honorees as well as a very special performance by Nepal's game-changing Kung Fu Nuns.
