The Jury

Election of the Winner

The jury that selects the winner has itself many years of experience on boards of directors. The composition was chosen with a view to the required competence and diversity of an objective and independent body.

The candidates have served at least five years as members of the board of directors of a renowned company, where they have made a major contribution to the value of the company. The business partners nominate high-performing female board members on this basis.
