NEW DELHI: MD and CEO ICICI Bank Chanda Kochhar on Thursday received the Woodrow Wilson Award for Global Corporate Citizenship from the Woodrow Wilson Centre in Washington DC on May 10, 2017.

Signifying her tremendous work and able leadership in improving the lives of people, the award was conferred on Kochhar for demonstrating a commitment to the common good - beyond the bottom line.

"I would like to accept this honour on behalf of India, its women and the ICICI Group," said Kochhar while receiving the award.

"Today, we have provided skill training, free of cost, in technical trades, sales and office skills, to over 136,000 people, who are gainfully employed," she added.

Adding to this she said that she feels inspired to be counted amongst the ones who have received the honor in the past.

Earlier, the award was received by Senator Mitch McConnell, Majority Leader of the Senate. He was conferred the 2017 Woodrow Wilson Award for Public Service.

"Chanda Kochhar is known for her leading roles in strengthening ICICI Bank's retail franchise, improving technological innovation in India, and helping expand opportunities for women," said Chairman of the Board of Trustees at Wilson Center, Thomas Nides.

Previous recipients of the Woodrow Wilson Awards include former president Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam; Infosys founder N R Narayana Murthy, U.S. Secretary of State Rex W Tillerson as well as four former US Secretaries of State - Dr. Henry Kissinger, General Colin Powell, Hillary Clinton and Condoleezza Rice.
