The Aspen Institute and Institute Trustee Anne Welsh McNulty today announced the sixth annual John P. McNulty Prize finalists, a group of four extraordinary leaders who bring the spirit of innovation and excellence that characterized their success in the private sector to bear on some of the most intractable issues of our time.

Founded by Anne McNulty in honor of her late husband John, the Prize aims to galvanize efforts to address the foremost social, economic and political challenges of our time by recognizing the very best in high impact leadership. Each year, an international jury that has included Mary Robinson, Bill Gates, Sr., and Sir Richard Branson selects the winner. It recognizes exceptional leadership projects undertaken by the Fellows of the Aspen Global Leadership Network.
