Untold numbers of individuals and organizations all over the world are standing up for human rights – often in exemplary ways. The Roland Berger Foundation honors such champions of human dignity each year. We select one, two or, at most, three and confer on them the Roland Berger Human Dignity Award. The annual award is endowed with up to EUR 1 million. Proposals can be submitted to us by anyone who knows the work of those who have set an example. You, too, can suggest a candidate for the award. Having examined the validity of your suggestions, we will post them on this blog for voting by site visitors. The ones that receive the most votes will be included on our shortlist of up to ten candidates. The independent Awards Committee will then arrive at its decision. Voting for the Roland Berger Human Dignity Award 2014/15 closed December 10th 2013 (Human Rights Day) at 00:00 CET. We look forward to receiving your proposals!
