In a nutshell, the MT Sky Future Leaders Awards aims to recognise and reward the individuals who are making a difference within their organisations. Our focus is on ethics and sustainability – are you creating a fairer, kinder start-up, or spearheading green initiatives in your corporation? If so, you’d better get your skates on and tell us about it.

Here’s a quick overview of the categories this year:

Corporate Ace

This is for those who’ve advanced up the career ladder within medium to large-sized organisations (250-plus employees) up to middle management level, especially those who have helped push the cause of sustainability to new heights.
MBA Mastermind
This is open to those currently studying part-time for an MBA whilst still in employment and postgraduate MBA students who have finished their MBA studies within the past five years. This category particularly asks entrants to demonstrate how they have applied what they’ve learnt in the workplace.
Start-Up Star
This category is aimed at entrepreneurs who have put sustainability at the heart of their business. Or sustainability champions working for a small to medium-sized enterprise with up to 250 employees.
Don’t think these awards are just for the private sector. For people in the public or third sectors, whether in a government organisation or a forward-thinking charity, now is the time to shout about your achievements.
One to Watch
For those who are just starting out and have been on a corporate or professional graduate scheme for less than three years, and are helping to make their organisation more sustainable.

So, what are you waiting for? If you are championing sustainability in your not-for profit, building your start-up with sustainability in mind, taking care of the environment from within a global firm, or if you’re just starting out on your sustainability journey, tell us about it.
The shortlist will be published in the September issue of the magazine, with profiles of the winners appearing in the November issue. Winners will also be invited to an exclusive lunch with some of the judges.
