Rising Stars of Corporate Governance Award – Each year, the Millstein Center for Global Markets and Corporate Ownership at Columbia Law School presents the annual Rising Stars of Corporate Governance Awards.
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.
Rising Stars Criteria
A selection committee assesses candidates on criteria including:
- Past accomplishments
- Thought leadership
- Future projects and potential
- Leadership and character
The selection committee reserves authority in considering and applying the judging criteria.
Nominees must be younger than 40 years old as of the date of the award ceremony. Candidates can be based anywhere worldwide, but must possess a record of outstanding performance in corporate governance that marks them from their peers. Award winners are announced at the annual Millstein Governance Forum.
Rising Stars Due Date
Nominations will be open until Friday, October 7, 2016. Winners will be announced at the 2016 Millstein Governance Forum in New York City.
