*From:* Abigail.Noble at [mailto:Abigail.Noble at]


We are accepting nominations for the 2013 class of Young Global Leaders of
the World Economic Forum.

Here is the official nomination site:

Nominations are due by Saturday...which is short notice (but hopefully the
nomination form does not take more than 10 min per candidate).

The basic criteria (below) is that the person should be below the age of
40, and have demonstrated a tremendous track record of success in whatever
they have accomplished (and to be viewed as a future leader of the world).

Please also let me know of any candidates that the MPA/ID program strongly
recommends...I will follow-up internally to make sure those candidates get
a thorough look and make the shortlist.

Warmest Regards from Geneva,

The Forum of Young Global Leaders has established a comprehensive selection
process for identifying and selecting the most exceptional leaders 40 years
of age or younger. Every year, thousands of candidates from around the
world are proposed and assessed according to rigorous selection criteria. **

Only the very best candidates are selected and all efforts are extended to
create a truly representative body. First, the shortlisted candidates are
evaluated by Heidrick & Struggles, recognised as one of the world's leading
executive search and leadership consulting firms. As a final step in the
selection process, the candidates are screened by the Selection Committee. *

Reflecting the diversity of stakeholders, the Young Global Leaders include
leaders from politics, business, civil society, academia, and arts and
culture across seven geographic regions. Together, they form a unique
community that can dramatically affect the lives of future generations and
craft innovative responses to address global and regional challenges. ****
