MDN President/CEO Sudaria to Global Leadership Award

The chairman of The Tällberg Foundation, which is mainly based in Sweden, but which has offices in New York and Stockholm, has sent notice via email to Mr., Dante Sudaria, MDN Publisher & President/CEO, informing him of his nomination for the 2024 Tällberg-SNF-Eliasson Global Leadership Prize. Tällberg Foundation chaiurman Alan Stoga, stated in his letter: “ Dear Dante, as chairman of the Tällberg Foundation, I am delighted to inform you that you have been nominated for the 2024 Tällberg-SNF-Eliasson Global Leadership Prize.

The Prize, in its 10th year, is given annually to outstanding leaders from any country and any discipline who are innovative, courageous, dynamic, ethical, and who understand global challenges require global solutions.

You have been nominated through an open, online process. An international jury will review the nominations in mid-September and select the finalists. Candidates who are shortlisted will then be notified to schedule a final interview. Winners will be announced in November.

Ultimately, the jury will select the people who, in their judgment, best exemplify the types of leaders needed today. Three winners will each receive an unrestricted grant of $50,000, made possible by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation, and will be celebrated at an award ceremony in Italy in January 2025.”

“Together, we can seek global solutions to global challenges.” Best regards, Alan Stoga, Chairman, Tällberg Foundation.

About the Foundation: “The Tällberg Foundation, launched in 1981 by Swedish business leader Bo Ekman, explores the issues that are challenging and changing our societies, with the goal of stimulating new thinking and discovering new solutions.

The world that we have known since the mid 20th century, which produced unprecedented peace as well as unparalleled human advance, is changing at a pace and in directions that threaten to devolve towards Orwellian dystopia. All is made worse by the accelerating retreat from globalism, even in the face of problems whose very nature demands global solutions.

But forces for “good” still exist and need to be renewed, made more muscular and more effective. The Foundation aspires to be part of that process.

Tällberg’s work program focuses on understanding how to re-inject ethics into leadership; re-establish the legitimacy of governance; and manage, instead of being managed by, disruptive technologies, climate change, mass migration and other phenomena. We aim to contribute to the new thinking —and new acting— required by this moment in history.

The Tällberg Foundation convenes people with diverse and different minds, ideas, cultures, and perspectives in a search for new, actionable solutions. In that sense, the Foundation is more a platform than an organization, with a constantly evolving network. Our deep commitment to globalism makes us fundamentally nomadic: geographic borders need to be crossed with as much enthusiasm as intellectual boundaries if we have any hope of effecting the kinds of positive change the world now needs.

Tällberg conversations aim at impact and are designed to have lasting value. We do that by convening both the usual and unusual suspects, challenging them to break boundaries, and urging them to positive, disruptive action.” About the Prize: “The Tällberg Foundation’s core purpose is identifying, honoring, nurturing, and networking outstanding leaders. The kind of women and men who understand the challenges our societies face, who take the risks and who—above all—produce impact.

In alignment with that ethos, we established the Tällberg-SNF-Eliasson Global Leadership Prize. The prize name honors the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF), whose support makes it possible, and Jan Eliasson, one of the most accomplished global diplomats of our era. Both SNF and Jan share Tällberg’s deep commitment to encouraging positive global change.

The world faces accelerating climate change, disruptive technology, increasing conflict and war, massive numbers of displaced people seeking safety, the breakup of the post-war global order that framed and facilitated the great human advances of the past decades.

We made it; we broke it; and the good news is we can fix it. We believe that great leadership can bend the arc of history.”
