The Mexico Institute 2022 Woodrow Wilson Awards Dinner

The Wilson Center’s Mexico Institute will host its traditional Awards Dinner on Tuesday, October 25, 2022, to honor Mrs. Laura Díez Barroso Azcárraga, Chairwoman of Santander and Grupo Aeroportuario del Pacífico, with the Woodrow Wilson Award for Corporate Citizenship and Mr. José Ángel Gurría Treviño, former Mexican Secretary of Foreign Affairs and former Secretary General of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, with the Woodrow Wilson Award for Public Service. The celebration will begin with a cocktail reception at 7 pm (Central Time), followed by a dinner at 8 pm, both at the St. Regis Hotel in Mexico City, to benefit the Mexico Institute.

What is the Mexico Institute Awards Dinner?

Since 1998, the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars recognizes leaders who work tirelessly to improve the quality of life of others with the Woodrow Wilson Awards. The Center’s Board of Trustees nominates those who have shown extraordinary commitment to service in the spirit of Woodrow Wilson – the 28th President of the United States. See all previous awardees here.

The Wilson Center’s Mexico Institute is the premier organization in the United States that brings together policymakers, business leaders, scholars, and other stakeholders in the U.S.-Mexico relationship to develop policy options for improving bilateral ties.

The Woodrow Wilson Award for Corporate Citizenship

The Woodrow Wilson Award for Corporate Citizenship is given to those executives who, by their examples and their business practices, have shown a deep concern for the common good beyond the bottom line. These corporate leaders have inherited Woodrow Wilson's commitment to scholarship, public discourse, and the promotion of knowledge both at home and abroad. They work tirelessly in the service of their belief that private firms should be good citizens in their own neighborhoods and in the world at large. They understand that good citizenship can come in many forms, such as promoting renewed growth and vigor in economically disadvantaged towns and neighborhoods, supporting the arts, encouraging ties between different sectors of society, promoting international cooperation and understanding, and improving education at all levels. Recipients of this prestigious award recognize the unique, enlightened role they can play in improving society in general, while at the same time advancing the long-term interests of their firms, employees, and shareholders.

We are delighted to honor Mrs. Laura Díez Barroso Azcárraga, Chairwoman of Santander and Grupo Aeroportuario del Pacífico, with the 2022 Woodrow Wilson Award for Corporate Citizenship.

The Woodrow Wilson Award for Public Service

The Woodrow Wilson Award for Public Service is given to individuals who have served with distinction in public life and have shown a special commitment to seeking out informed opinions and thoughtful views. Recipients of this award share Woodrow Wilson’s steadfast belief in public discourse, scholarship, and the extension of the benefits of knowledge in the United States and around the world. They have poured their time, talents, and resources into improving the lives and futures of others and in so doing have inspired us all. Honorees include policymakers, philanthropists, scientists, civic and religious leaders, and celebrities who have excelled in their fields while leaving a deep, positive impact on their communities and the world at large.

This year, it is our pleasure to present the Woodrow Wilson Award for Public Service to Mr. José Ángel Gurría Treviño, former Mexican Secretary of Foreign Affairs and former Secretary General of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development.
