Singapore, 1 August: CSRWorks is pleased to announce its latest project: Asia’s Top Sustainability Superwomen, a non-profit initiative to honour the region’s exceptional female sustainability leaders. It will be an annual listing of women leaders who are driving change within and outside their organisations for a sustainable future.
Nominations for the first edition of Asia’s Top Sustainability Superwomencan be submitted online latest by 7 Sept 2018.
The nominations are open to native Asian women working in Asia with exemplary leadership in sustainability. Also eligible are expatriate women who have lived and worked in Asia for at least the past 5 years championing sustainability.
The nominee should be in a senior management role with a demonstrated commitment to sustainability. Examples include CEOs or equivalent, executives directly reporting to CEO, Chief Sustainability Officers, Head of Sustainability, similar positions and equivalent positions if the nominee is from a non-corporate sector. The nominee should have held the current position for at least three years.
