This award has been given in past years to one recipient annually, an ambassador or UN staff member who has helped to bring spirituality and values to the work of the United Nations. This year, the Committee decided to present awards in three categories: Ambassador, UN staff, and Non-Governmental Organization (NGO).

Deborah and Monica were both nominated because they work so closely together.
