About the Emerging Leader Award

The Emerging Leader Award is

granted to an enthusiastic individual displaying promising leadership qualities. Someone who’s advocacy and use of open education is inspiring, making them an effective spokesperson. Someone who has demonstrated a strong commitment towards its ideals or has achieved significant accomplishments.

This award was first offered in 2020 so we have one example to share, but Rajiv Jhangiani is an exemplar to understand the category.

Please also reply here in OEG Connect to ask Rajiv any questions or offer insights into his leadership work. Think about and reply with suggestions for whom you might suggest as an emerging leader in open education that ought to be nominated in 2021.
