YGL Class of 2014
Every year the World Economic Forum reviews thousands of nominations to find the most accomplished and inspiring young leaders to join the Forum of Young Global Leaders. Every year the task gets even harder, as the volume of outstanding nominations increases due to the growing profile and impact of this amazing community.
All of the nominations go through a rigorous selection process involving internal vetting, independent evaluation by Heidrick & Struggles and finally screening by a selection Committee headed by Her Majesty Queen Rania Al Abdullah of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan. Candidates are selected based on their proven track record of professional accomplishments, breadth of their expertise, commitment to society and their ability to overcome adversity, among other criteria.
This year’s class of Young Global Leaders Class will be announced to the press on the 11th March 2014.
