Our Whistleblower of the Year Nominations for 2021 are Coming Soon
It is that time of year again when Whistleblower Insider asks for its readers to help select the Whistleblower of the Year. As in past years, we are interested in showcasing the individuals who best encapsulate the qualities of the typical whistleblower — courage, strength, integrity, selflessness, and a deep concern for public health and safety. Voting begins in mid-December with the winners announced in February. Here is the listing of last year’s candidates and the post on last year’s winner, Rebekah Jones. She was the former data scientist for the Florida Department of Health who refused to manipulate COVID-19 tracking data.
Over the next two weeks, we will be rolling out this year’s Whistleblower of the Year candidates, with voting to begin on December 15. Here is the compelling story of our first candidate, Alex Vlasov. He is the former employee of the now-defunct private security firm Black Box, who ultimately brought down the company by speaking out against its private surveillance tactics against Britney Spears. His revelations helped lead to the dissolution of the controversial Britney Spears conservatorship, and sparked a wider debate about the potential abuses of conservatorships more broadly. There is no question Mr. Vlasov is a worthy candidate for this year’s nomination.
Watch this space in the coming weeks as we introduce our other worthy candidates. And be sure to vote when polls open on December 15.
