Now in their sixth year, the WeAreTheCity Rising Star Awards are the first to focus on the UK’s female talent pipeline below management level.
Our strategic goal, set in 2015, aims to showcase 1,000 outstanding women by 2022. By highlighting the accolades of these women, WeAreTheCity are not only promoting the amazing female talent that exists across the UK, but actively encouraging organisations and business leaders to invest in and recognise these women as leaders of tomorrow and individual contributors to their respective industries.
These awards will recognise and celebrate a further 100 female individual contributors across 25 different industries that represent the leaders and role models of tomorrow. These winners will join our award’s alumni of 550 previous winners, across the UK and India.
In previous years, the awards have been supported by an array of FTSE sponsors and this year is no different.
We are proud to announce that the 2020 Rising Star Awards are supported by 3M, Accenture, Bloomberg, British Army, C&C Search, Cancer Research UK, Citi, CMI Women, Elysian Search Consulting, GlaxoSmithKline, Goldman Sachs, Lloyds Banking Group, Lloyd’s of London, Mott MacDonald, Oliver Wyman, Oxford Said Business School, Northern Trust, Reed Smith and Sage.
We are also proud to announce a new category for this year – Men For Gender Change, sponsored by HSBC.
