We are delighted to announce that Gateway CEO, Jenny Hunt, was awarded an Asian Women Leadership Award 2015.
The Asian Women Leadership Award is conferred on "Outstanding Professionals who have the vision, flair, acumen and professionalism to demonstrate excellent leadership and management skills in an organisation, making changes and achieving results". The awards merit recognition to contributions made by an individual who has made a difference to the society – people, industry and the community and played a role of responsible citizen.
The objective of the Awards is to identify and celebrate the outstanding leadership and achievements demonstrated by Women leaders who are reflected by their distinct innovations and initiatives brought in by them in various private / public sectors and entrepreneurship. Asian Confederation of Business, World Leadership Congress and the World CSR Day are the Strategic Partners for the Asian Leadership Awards.
Commenting on the award, Jenny Hunt, said "When I received the communication advising me that I was to receive the award, I was so shocked that I emailed the organizers thinking they had contacted the wrong person. It wasn't an award's body that I was I familiar with." She added: "It's an absolute honour to receive such an award and I hope this gives inspiration to women to follow their dreams and to organizations to invest in developing and empowering their female employees."
The “Asian Women Leadership Award” is an intensely researched initiative. The research cell consists of Post Graduates in History & Management with over more than 5 years research experience post their studies. It is the iconic job of the research cell to produce a shortlist of Individuals who have demonstrated outstanding achievement in the conception, creation and execution of their leadership initiatives. The shortlist is then reviewed by a Jury comprising of senior professionals from blue chip organizations across the globe. We also seek guidance from independent and voluntary professionals on a regular basis. During our shortlist process, we consider the following criteria & parameters:

However, the broad parameters are:
- Interpersonal Skills
