Monique Morrow, president and co-founder of The Humanized Internet and a Thinking Heads exclusive speaker, has been named as one of the top 5 "leading figures" in safety and security in business by the Europa Forum Luzern, the premier discussion and ideas platform for networking in business, politics, science, civil society and the future generation. The platform singled out Monique from a host of other nominees whose achievements, visions, ideas, qualities or caliber provide stimulating topics for discussion and have the potential to shape the future constructively or to rethink cross-border cooperation. Her role as the Founder of The Humanized Internet, a non-profit organization that focuses on providing digital identity through the use of Blockchain to people at risk of social exclusion, was instrumental in Monique receiving this recognition.
The Europa Forum Luzern, which has been promoting a strong Europe for more than 20 years, names its recipients annually. Those chosen must have demonstrated outstanding work in the fields of business, science, politics, civil society or future generations. Monique's work has been an example of this in a year that has been defined by the slogan "Security in times of uncertainty". Monique Morrow was selected as one of the five leading figures in the "business" field.
