In addition to the awards program, BCIU will hold the inaugural New York Dialogues, a series of powerful discussions on challenges and solutions in global healthcare, food security, and energy transition. The theme throughout the day is “Our Shared Responsibility,” which speaks to the shared values and commitments of a world that is intertwined financially, technologically, environmentally, and beyond. The livestreamed New York Dialogues will address healthcare accessibility and the need for a collective and cohesive recovery; financing and aquaculture and creating sustainable food systems; and evolving carbon assests and net zero investing. Senior executives from AMERRA Capital, Ardian, AVRAMAR Seafood, Citi, Global Infrastrucure Partners, Jefferson Health, and Organon, as well as senior officials from the International Finance Corporation, UNICEF, the U.S. International Development Finance Corporation, and the World Health Organization will participate on panels.
“With our 19th annual Dwight D. Eisenhower Global Awards program, and our inaugural New York Dialogues, we are both celebrating outstanding global leadership and creating space for concrete action around our shared responsibility to address the world’s most complex challenges in health, agriculture, and energy. We’re delighted to present this year’s awards to two individuals who embody outstanding leadership with the ability to influence and transform their respective organizations and industries,” said Peter Tichansky, President and CEO, BCIU. “Both have gone to great lengths to not only encourage unity but to also drive a greater sense of shared responsibility and understanding among the international business community. H.E. Khaldoon Khalifa Al Mubarak has illustrated tremendous global leadership, service and contribution and Ken Frazier has shown extraordinary stewardship of Merck proven by the results he has been able to achieve for patients and society.”
“As global leaders, we have a shared responsibility to work together to help ensure equity of opportunity for everyone, including in critical areas of healthcare, economics, education, and social justice. I am honored to be recognized by BCIU for Merck’s contribution and commitment to find and make accessible, innovative scientific solutions for some of the world’s greatest health challenges,” said Frazier. “I share in the excitement about using BCIU’s platform to advance human development in sustainable ways and with the same spirit of collaboration, ingenuity and urgency that has characterized the ways in which we are working to end the global pandemic.”
As Managing Director and Group Chief Executive Officer of Mubadala, H.E. Khaldoon Khalifa Al Mubarak has led the company’s impactful evolution for almost two decades. Al Mubarak’s global and entrepreneurial mindset and laser focus has helped steer the company through organic growth, mergers and acquisitions that have made Mubadala a $232 billion business with assets in more than 50 countries across six international offices. Al Mubarak’s openness to global collaboration have led to sustainable financial returns for its shareholder, the Government of Abu Dhabi.
