Rising Stars logo, Rising Stars in BankingHere you will find all of our information on the banking category for our 2015 Rising Star awards as well as all of our nominees. The awards are the only awards of their kind to focus solely on the pipeline of female talent below management level. The aim of the 2015 awards is to recognise and celebrate 50 female role models and individual contributors across 10 different industries who represent the future leaders of tomorrow.

WeAreTheCity.com was founded in April 2008 and launched in September 2008, with the aim of providing information to women who wish to progress in their careers via networking and events.  The concept of the website is to provide services that not only help women develop themselves both personally and professionally, but also contributes to a wider strategy of supporting working women in the UK more broadly by bringing together the charity sector and potential entrepreneurs on to one common platform.
