About the IWIRC Rising Star Award
In furtherance of IWIRC’s mission, which is devoted to enhancing the professional status of women in the insolvency and restructuring profession, IWIRC has established an award for individuals who are the “Rising Stars” of IWIRC. IWIRC wants to recognize and honor the “Rising Stars” of the organization for their contributions to IWIRC. The Rising Star nominees may be attorneys, bankers, turnaround advisors, claims and noticing agents, academics or other restructuring industry professionals who are actively engaged in the restructuring industry, are located anywhere in the world, and who have shown dedication and commitment to IWIRC on the local, national and/or international level.
All nominees for the IWIRC Rising Star Award must be members of IWIRC. However, IWIRC membership is NOT a requirement to make a nomination. Nominations may be received from firms, companies, partners, associates, IWIRC Networks, IWIRC members, organizations or otherwise.
The IWIRC Rising Star Award will be presented to the woman who:
- Has eight years or less experience in the insolvency & restructuring industry
- Has been actively involved in promoting IWIRC – locally, nationally and/or internationally either through IWIRC Network or IWIRC Board leadership, committee participation, securing sponsors, planning programs, spearheading events, etc.
- Has inspired, created, led and/or served on a Board of an IWIRC Network or committee
- Has shown exceptional leadership
- Has made an extraordinary contribution to IWIRC and/or an IWIRC Network
- Has gone above and beyond … and made a difference to the mission of IWIRC
Five Semi-Finalists will be announced in early September. All five Semi-Finalists will be invited to attend the Annual IWIRC Fall Conference where the winner of that year’s IWIRC Rising Star Award will be announced. The IWIRC Rising Star award recipient and all of the other Semi-Finalists (along with their supporting firms, companies, partners, organizations) will be recognized and presented with awards honoring their contributions and support of IWIRC.
