Embracing new ways to convene, The Asia Foundation will celebrate our annual Lotus Leadership Awards online and virtually on Wednesday April 15, at 6 pm EST. Honoring individuals and organizations who are powerful allies in the fight for gender equality, the awards are hosted annually by the Lotus Circle, a community of philanthropists who invest in The Asia Foundation’s work to strengthen economic, social, and political rights and opportunities for women and girls in Asia.

The 2020 Lotus Leadership Awards will honor Ziauddin Yousafzai for his activism of girls’ rights to education as co-founder and board member of Malala Fund; Mastercard for their commitment to women’s economic empowerment and financial inclusion; and The Gender Lab in India, for their engagement of boys as allies in the movement for gender equality.
