Each year, the Millstein Center for Global Markets and Corporate Ownership at Columbia Law School presents the annual Rising Star 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.
A selection committee comprised of previous award recipients assesses 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 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.
The nomination form for the 2015 Rising Star of Corporate Governance Award will be released in April 2015. Please check back on this website this spring for details and to nominate a 2015 Rising Star.
