Other criteria include demonstrating commitment to the protection and advancement of human rights and social justice – and how this extraordinary commitment has improved lives and contributed to the wellbeing
of people. The individual should be demonstrating these values through volunteer activities and personal commitment above and beyond their paid employment.
