I’m pleased to have been asked to serve as a member of the selection committee for Devex’s 40 Under 40 Development Leaders in Washington DC exercise. Devex is seeking leaders who are:

Impactful – making a real impact on aid & development

Influential – helping to shape the development agenda

DC-Based – in the Washington, DC metro area

40 or younger – as of December 31, 2010

Of course, I know a few people here at CGD who meet this criteria, and naturally the selection committee rules preclude me from voting for them! So I’m hoping for lots of other strong nominees. The deadline is Monday August 23, midnight EST. You can submit your nominations here.
