We are proud to honor Debora Spar, President of Barnard College and an outstanding advocate for women’s education and leadership, with the 2014 New Yorker of Distinction Award. She has been president of Barnard College, the liberal arts college for women affiliated with Columbia University, since 2008. Among the initiatives she has spearheaded at Barnard are the Athena Center for Leadership Studies and the Barnard Global Symposium series, an annual gathering of high-profile and accomplished female leaders held each year in a different region of the world.

This year, we are pleased to present our inaugural Corporate Leadership Award to The Nielsen Community Outreach Programs. Nielsen engages in extensive outreach campaigns to ethnic communities in cities across the nation and globally to inform consumers about the economic power and opportunities within their communities. In addition, Nielsen provides financial and in-kind support to scores of organizations that support educational opportunities for economically disadvantaged students, promotes diversity and civic engagement and works to alleviate hunger.
