|qualities Minister shines the light on talented females|
|Monday, 01 February 2016|
Today, nominations open for the Rising Star Awards 2016, the first to focus on the UK’s female talent pipeline below management level. The awards will celebrate 100 individual female contributors that represent the leaders and role models of tomorrow. Founded in 2015, the awards will shine the light on female talent across the country.
The awards are supported by Minister for Equalities, Nicky Morgan, who commented: “These awards are an incredible celebration of the great achievements women are making in business. We have more women on FTSE boards than ever before, the lowest gender pay gap on record and we’ve been rated the best place in Europe for women to start a business. I am proud of how far we’ve come but we must now build on that momentum so we achieve true gender equality.”
Founder and CEO Vanessa Valley hopes the awards will encourage organisations to consider how they strengthen the development of their female pipeline in the future. She said: "The focus on increasing the number of women on boards in the UK over the past few years has been extremely successful. We now need to focus on helping to highlight women who will be future managers and directors within our organisations.”
This year the awards will also welcome a number of categories, which include Rising Star Cham-pions and a Defence Category. The Rising Star Champions category will recognise both male and female senior leaders who actively support the female talent pipeline, and the Defence category is the first of it’s kind, celebrating the pipeline of future leaders in Defence.
This is also a record year for the awards recognising 100 women from across the UK and Ireland - an increase of 50 from last year’s ceremony.
