Business as a Force for Good Award – 2021

Submit a nomination

In the years following World War II, Georges Doriot came up with the idea that the world needed a new kind of educational institution—one that united people, embraced diversity, and leveraged business to rebuild nations and promote peace. He envisioned an institution that could make a meaningful contribution to society.

That institution, of course, was INSEAD. In the decades since its founding in 1957, our school has never wavered from that vision. Our belief in using business as a force for good has come to define who we are, what we stand for and how we conduct ourselves in the world.

The INSEAD Alumni Association Singapore is proud to announce that this year’s “Business as a Force for Good” Award is open for nominations.

What is the Award about?

The award will recognize INSEAD alumni with businesses in Singapore who have demonstrated thought-leadership with respect to “Business as a Force for Good”, have a vision, mission statement and strategy clearly demonstrating their commitment, have developed corporate social responsibility best practices and have achieved remarkable economical results and meaningful societal impact.

The award will be presented during the Association’s Annual General Meeting 2021, which will be hosted on 26 February 2021 in Singapore.

Top nominees and the award winner will gain visibility through various PR activities and social media articles sharing details about the award and their company’s accomplishments.

What is the selection criteria?

A jury made of alumni leaders from various industries will identify the award winner. Selections will be based on the positive impact the organization has had on society through its corporate social responsibility program or its core business activities.

How can you participate?

Please simply complete this link with the name of either your company or a company that you know well, deserving to be nominated. We will need the name of a representative (yourself or another contact person who is an INSEAD alum) whom the selection committee will contact for further details. Nominations must be received no later than 5 January 2021. 

The “Business as a Force for Good” Award is a wonderful opportunity to recognize best practices, to give visibility to deserving companies and to promote INSEAD’s mission. We are very much looking forward to hearing from you soon.
