About this event

There is much to be done as the world slowly recovers from a global pandemic. As they work in their respective industries, many young leaders are taking the lead to make the world more sustainable; accelerating this charge through digitization and by developing the talent and skills of the youth.

Through their inspiring work, select Filipino leaders have been recognized as honorees in the 2021 Gen.T list, a yearly definitive list that acknowledges the strides these leaders have taken that not only accelerated recovery but also shaped Asia’s future in the process.

Join our special QLITAN this October 26 at 5PM and meet the Gen.T list honorees who continue to redefine their respective industries and help shape the future through their ingenious initiatives and advocacies.

This QLITAN will be hosted via Zoom for a more interactive experience. Don't forget to register to join the conversation!
