The Millstein Center is now accepting nominations for its fourth annual global “Rising Stars of Corporate Governance.” This award recognizes people who, while young and possibly new to the field of corporate governance, are making their mark as outstanding analysts, experts, activists or managers. They may be at any of the many bodies that comprise the global world of corporate governance: corporations, academic bodies, institutional investors, auditors, advisory firms, rating agencies, proxy services, professional associations, and others.
A selection committee (comprised of leaders from the International Corporate Governance Network, Millstein Center for Corporate Governance & Performance, Open Compliance & Ethics Group, and Weil Gotshal & Manges) will assess candidates on criteria such as: past accomplishments and thought leadership; future projects and endeavors; reputation among existing industry leaders; and potential to influence the industry in the future.The selection committee reserves the authority in considering and applying the judging criteria.
Nominees must be under 40 years as of June 15, 2011. Candidates can be based anywhere worldwide, but must possess a record of outstanding performance in corporate governance that marks them from their peers. Rising Stars will be acknowledged at a special reception on June 15, 2011 as part of the annual Yale Corporate Governance Forum.
