The celebration of this year’s Rising Star shortlist will be held on Thursday 8 June 2017 at Bloomberg’s European headquarters and will be attended by all shortlisted nominees, the judging panel, corporate sponsors and supporters.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank Bloomberg for sponsoring and hosting what will no doubt be an inspiring evening and celebration of female talent.

Pamela Hutchinson, Head of Diversity and Inclusion at Bloomberg said, “At Bloomberg, we recognise the value diversity brings to our organisation and we’re delighted to host the celebration event for this year’s nominees. These women, along with previous nominees and winners, are critical in motivating women to join the workplace and an inspiration to those already here.

It’s an incredibly impressive list of individuals and we congratulate WeAreTheCity in giving visibility to these amazing women.”
