Now in their seventh year, the WeAreTheCity’s 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 650 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 2021 Rising Star Awards are powered by the Royal Bank of Canada and supported by 3M, Accenture, Barclays, Bloomberg, the British Army, C&C Search, Citi, CMI Women, Elysian, Goldman Sachs, GSK, Highways Sector Council, HSBC, Lloyd’s Insurance, National Grid, Northern Trust, Oliver Wyman, Oxford Said Business School, and Reed Smith.
Additional sponsors, categories and judges will be announced throughout January.
Nominations open 11 January 2021 and close 8 March 2021.
We are extremely proud to receive the support of so many individuals and organisations for this years Rising Star Awards. We would like to extend our sincere thanks for their words of encouragement and for helping us to celebrate the achievements of the amazing women.
