Members of the RSM community which consists of students, staff, faculty members, and alumni, can submit nominations in three categories. 

After nominees are selected, alumni, staff, students, and friends of RSM can vote for the person they think most deserves to be recognised in each category. A separate panel of judges also votes for their preferred winner, with the final result based on both the jury and public vote combined.

Force for Positive Change: Peace, Justice, and Strong Institutions

Since 2020, we’ve granted an award to highlight the work being done by alumni in service of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals. Each year, a different SDG will be represented. In 2023, the award will acknowledge an alum who is initiating and leading action to promote peaceful and inclusive societies, provide access to justice for all, or build effective, accountable, and inclusive institutions in line with SDG 16.
