The Ira M. Millstein Center for Global Markets and Corporate Ownership at Columbia Law School is now accepting nominations for the annual Rising Stars of Corporate Governance award.
This award recognizes people who, while young and possibly new to the field of corporate governance, are making their marks as outstanding analysts, experts, activists, or managers. Recipients may represent any of the many bodies that comprise the 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 previous award recipients will assess candidates on criteria including: 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 authority in considering and applying the judging criteria.
Nominees must be younger than 40 years old as of June 24, 2013. Candidates can be based anywhere worldwide, but must possess a record of outstanding performance in corporate governance that marks them from their peers.
The nomination deadline is March 31, 2013. Rising Stars will be acknowledged at the Millstein Governance Forum in New York City on June 24—25, 2013.
Please forward the nominee’s CV or résumé to firstname.lastname@example.org along with a brief cover letter (no more than one page) explaining why the candidate should be recognized as a Rising Star.
This is a great opportunity to spotlight thought leaders who will influence corporate governance for years to come.
