The Tällberg-SNF-Eliasson Global Leadership Prize is awarded annually to outstanding leaders who demonstrate the willingness and capacity to address the complexity of 21st-century challenges in innovative, risk-taking, and ethical ways, and whose work is global in aspiration or implication and is rooted in universal values. Nominations for the Prize can be made by anyone, anywhere through an online process. In 2021, 2,414 leaders were nominated from 126 countries, representing a wide range of disciplines, occupations, and political perspectives.
The finalists were chosen by a jury of women and men, themselves leaders from around the world. For the first time this year the jury separately considered nominations for established leaders as well as for emerging leaders. The jury’s selections for the two winners of the 2021 Tällberg-SNF-Eliasson Global Leadership Prizes as well as the two Emerging Leaders winners will be announced in November and awarded in December.
