      The Times and The Sunday Times are the headline sponsors of the 2017 awards - supported by leading organisations including 3M, Aon, Barclays, Bloomberg, Cancer Research UK, LinkedIn, Lloyd’s, Morgan Stanley and Oliver Wyman - that will recognise the achievements of 100 women.

      Vanessa Vallely, founder and chief executive officer of WeAreTheCity, said: “Once again the response to the Rising Stars awards has been amazing, both in terms of the amount of nominations received and the calibre of entries. We know there is an amazing amount of female talent across the UK and it gives us such pleasure to be able to shine a light on these women’s achievements through our awards.

      “I am looking forward to celebrating our 200-strong shortlist before heading in to the final round of judging to identify our top 100 winners.”
