Nominations are now open for the Rising Star Awards 2017, recognising the UK’s female talent pipeline below management level across 20 industries – one being Rising Stars in Technology.

For the third year running, these highly successful awards will celebrate 100 individual female contributors who represent the leaders and role models of tomorrow. These individuals will join an alumni of 200 previous winners from 2015/2016 across the UK and India.

The 2017 awards are headline sponsored by The Times and The Sunday Times, with the technology category being sponsored by Morgan Stanley.

WeAreTheCity are also proud to announce the Company of the Year award, a new category for 2017. The award recognises the achievements of a company who can clearly demonstrate that they are actively supporting and developing their female talent pipeline through initiatives, training, development programmes and/or internal employee relations groups.

In addition, the awards are once again looking for Rising Star Champions, which acknowledges the efforts of both male and female senior leaders, who are supporting the pipeline outside of their corporate responsibilities.

Nominations are now closed.
