Colleagues, thank you for participating in the MAG nomination process on this IG community space, and especially, thank you to our nominees for self-nominating themselves to serve.
The poll closed earlier today, with the votes being one of the contributing factors for endorsement. The full list of nominees considered for Diplo endorsement are here.
The nominees to be recommended to the Civil Society Coordination Group (CSCG) by the Diplo Community, based on the endorsement factors explained below, are (in alphabetical order):
Kissangou Jean Philemon
Nkurunziza Jean Paul
While the poll asked community members to vote for up to five nominees, the results showed strong endorsement for the above eight nominees. Congratulations to our endorsed nominees!
As explained in the original call, endorsement of MAG nominees from the DiploFoundation community was based on the following factors:
40% representing results of the community poll;
+ up to 20% for IG experience, competence and experience in IG (based on the information submitted by the candidates in their nomination blog post);
+ 10% for nominees from least developing countries (to encourage participation from LDCs);
+ 10% for nominees from small island developing states (since Diplo's early days in Malta, support for small island states has been a Diplo development priority; they are under-represented, and highly dependent on the Internet, in part, due to the geographical remoteness);
+ 10% for nominees from countries which have not been represented on the MAG thus far (Increasing geographical diversification by encouraging those whose countries have never been represented is important, and helps contribute to global engagement and awareness building);
+ 10% to support women in IG processes, in particular, the MAG.
The calculation spreadsheet is available for review. Please email me (email@example.com) for the link if you would like to review it.
Once again, congratulations to those who have been endorsed, and thanks to everyone who participated in the poll. Remember that even those who are not endorsed by the Diplo Community will still be considered by the Nominating Committee at UN DESA/IGF Secretariat.
