Peace and Justice Strong Institutions Award

With great power comes great responsibility. This award wishes to highlight a company that champions human rights by directing its AI services towards the protection of these fundamental liberties. Having access to great technological expertise it is our responsibility to protect those whose voices are being silenced.

Good Health and Well-Being Award

As the capabilities of technology are increasing, so is its ability to provide emotional support. Harnessing the digital solutions of today to empower the sector of mental health is an initiative we champion and seek to recognise through this award.
