    • Rising Stars Awards

      Launched in 2015, the awards are the first to focus on women below senior management level and highlight the achievements of 100 female future leaders and role models across a variety of industries and professions each year.

      WeAreTheCity - an online forum that provides free careers advice – is now inviting members of the public to nominate an amazing woman in any of the 20 industry categories, which can be found on the Rising Stars Website.

      In addition, nominations are invited for the Company of the Year; the Rising Star Champion; and the Men for Gender Balance award.

      Nominations will stay open until 8 March and all entries will be assessed by a panel of independent judges. The public will be invited to vote for the shortlisted candidates between 20 April and 1 May, with the winners announced on 11 May.

      Last year, Lorna Bennet from the Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult programme; Mariapia Angelino from WSP; Rain Irshad from STFC RAL Space; Rand Alkhatib from Arcadis; and Rosario Barcena from Systra were the proud winners in the Science and Engineering category.

      Rain, Rosario and Rand are all speaking at a 3M STEM careers event for girls and their parents to be held in Bracknell on 12 March during British Science Week.

      Said Human Resources manager for the North Europe Region, Oznur Basaran: “We are proud to once again sponsor the Rising Star awards and champion these industry role models who help to inspire a love of STEM in the younger generation and show the wide range of career choices available.

      “Putting a worthy candidate forward for a Rising Star award is also a great way to showcase female talent, so we hope that 3Mers will consider nominating a colleague.”

      The 2020 winners, Rising Star alumni, judges, sponsors and supporters will be invited to a prestigious awards ceremony in London on 2 July.

      Nomination forms and details of the awards criteria can be found on the Rising Stars Website.
