World Economic Forum Project

The Malone Institute and Pharos/Media Foundation are responsible for the World Economic Forum Project. They created a database of World Economic Forum (WEF) graduates since 1992. They put this together in a spreadsheet and I have taken the information and put it on The Asylum for easy access. You can use the search field to search for specific graduates or browse graduates by category, country or region. You can also browse all the graduates if you have a little time on your hands. There are over 3,800.

Use our resource to find people who you may suspect have been or are still involved with the WEF. They may be business leaders, politicians, professors, scientists or activists. They are not to be trusted.

You can read more about the project and the WEF at: https://maloneinstitute.org/wef(opens new window). Their work on this is substantial and important. Please consider supporting them.

Notes from the institute and foundation

This list contains World Economic Forum’s Global Leaders of Tomorrow (a one-year program that ran from 1993 to 2003) and Young Global Leaders (a five-year program started 2004/2005 and still running).

To create this list we have used World Economic Forum search engines and published lists, Wayback Machine, Wikispooks, and complementary sources. It may not be 100% accurate but we have done our best to make it as correct and updated as possible.

We have also added links to existing biographies, primarily at World Economic Forum, or else Wikipedia, LinkedIn, company pages, or articles. Sometimes also links to organisations they have worked at.

Note: In many Asian countries it is customary to put the Family name first. We have tried to put the Family name in the right column but may not have gotten all them all right.

Positions and Organisations are in many cases updated to the most recent we could find, but not always.

The Sector designations chosen by WEF have changed over the years, so have used the most descriptive for their updated position and also added our own – especially in the Business sector where we have added Sub-sector for more detailed information.

We have added extra columns for Sex, Political position, Health connection, and finally Notes for additional or relevant information.

This list is not fully complete at the time of publishing. It is open to corrections and additions, should anyone spot an error or have more information.
