• Tim Cook to Be Presented With Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights 'Ripple of Hope' Award



    Apple CEO Tim Cook has done it again- it was announced recently that he will be receiving the 2015 ‘Ripple of Hope’ award from the Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights organization. The ceremony will be taking place on Tuesday, December 8th in New York. According to the organization’s website, the award:

    Lauds leaders of the international business, entertainment, and activist communities who demonstrate commitment to social change and reflect Robert Kennedy's passion for equality, justice, basic human rights, and his belief that we all must strive to 'make gentle the life of this world.
    In other words, the award honors those in commitment to social change, which Cook has clearly shown plenty of in the last few years. Other leaders receiving this award include Evercore co-founder Roger Altman, Congressman John Lewis, and UNESCO Ambassador Marianna Vardinoyannis.

    The CEO has previously partnered with the Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights organization in auctioning off lunch meetings, as well as two VIP Apple keynote passes, which generated over $200,000 this year. Cook has also been increasingly vocal about inequality, gay rights, and workplace diversity in recent years.

    Cook has definitely proved he deserves this award with everything he’s been recently doing.
