Video: The Lotus Circle, Modern Day Activists
October 4, 2017
As The Asia Foundation and the Lotus Circle prepare to honor Nobel Prize Laureate Amartya Sen and The Henry Luce Foundation at the seventh annual Lotus Leadership Awards Gala in New York City on Thursday, October 12, we take a moment to recognize the inspiring group of advisors that make up the Lotus Circle, and who are committed to empowering women across Asia through their leadership and vision. Hosted annually by The Asia Foundation’s Lotus Circle, an international philanthropy platform empowering women and girls in Asia to lead change in their own countries, the awards gala is attended by leaders in the philanthropic, diplomatic, and business communities. Proceeds from the evening will support innovative Asia Foundation projects designed to increase women’s empowerment and gender equality in the region. Former ABC 20/20 correspondent Lynn Sherr, who has reported on women’s issues for 30 years, will host the 2017 gala. Watch this video to learn more.
