2022 Community Business Awards - Information Session

Introducing Community Business Awards


Many of you will have participated in, or be familiar with, Community Business' various Award programmes – whether it be our well-established Hong Kong LGBT+ Inclusion Awards, our market leading D&I in India Best Practice Awards or our more recent Asia Employee Wellbeing Awards

Now for the first time, we are bringing all our award schemes together under the banner of the 2022 Community Business Awards. Our goal is to elevate the profile and prestige of these awards, broadening the focus and extending the reach to more markets in Asia, whilst simplifying the process at the same time.

With multiple award categories to choose from and a broad regional focus, the new 2022 Community Business Awards offer unrivalled opportunities to elevate your brand and showcase your commitment to building responsible leadership, tackling workplace inequality, ensuring employee wellbeing and promoting social inclusion – wherever you operate in Asia. 

Join this information session to learn more about the new Community Business Awards and in particular the nomination process.

A zoom link will be shared when it is closer to the event after your registration.

For any enquiries, please get in touch.
