IWD #ChooseToChallenge100, Speakers (2)

This year for International Women’s Day, we launched our #ChooseToChallenge100 campaign, asking 100 women and the public to share their stories as to how and why they choose to challenge for gender equality. 

Since the start of March, we’ve shared the stories of over 150 amazing women, from CEOs, to Founders, to Campaigners and Politicians! Through our social media channels and via shares from our supporters, we have been able to share these messages of challenge with over 70,000 individuals. Through the campaign, we have elevated the voices of so many incredible women who choose to challenge every day to see us treated fairly in regards to racial discrimination, bias, stereotypes, domestic violence, ageism, sexism, women’s health and the portrayal of women in the media.

Our campaign includes stories of challenge from June Sarpong OBE, TV Presenter, Diversity Expert & Award-Winning Author; Jacqueline de Rojas CBE, President, techUK; Professor Sue Black OBE, Professor of Computer Science & Technology Evangelist; Amali de Alwis MBE, UK Managing Director, Microsoft for Startups; June Angelides MBE, Early Stage Investor, Entrepreneur, Speaker and Advocate for the Rights of Working Mothers; Debbie Forster MBE, CEO, Tech Talent Charter; Mivy James, Digital Transformation Director, BAE Systems Applied Intelligence; and Sheree Atcheson, Global Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Leader.

For us, the journey continues as every day is International Women’s Day – 24/7, 365 days a year. We will not stop challenging and using our platform and voice to support those who campaign for equality every day. To all of you, please keep up your own challenges, whatever they may be.

#ChooseToChallenge100: Meet our 100 incredible women choosing to challenge gender bias & inequality this International Women's Day

IWD #ChooseToChallenge100, Speakers (2)

Meet WeAreTheCity & WeAreTechWomen’s 100 incredible women, choosing to challenge gender bias and inequality this International Women’s Day.

This year will see the celebration of the 110th International Women’s Day.

IWD was first celebrated as an official international day on 19 March 1911. Austria, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland were among the first countries outside of the US to mark the day. In 1975, during the International Women’s Year, the United Nations began celebrating 8 March as International Women’s Day. Since 1996, International Women’s Day has focused on annual themes that enables supporters to unite for gender equality. This year’s theme is Choose to Challenge.

As part of our #ChooseToChallenge100 campaign, WeAreTheCity and WeAreTechWomen asked 100 women to share their stories as to how and why they choose to challenge. Our campaign includes stories of challenge from CEO’s, Founders, Campaigners, Politicians, Charities and thought leaders, including June Sarpong OBE, TV Presenter, Diversity Expert & Award-Winning Author; Jacqueline de Rojas CBE, President, techUK; Professor Sue Black OBE, Professor of Computer Science & Technology Evangelist; Andrea McLean, Broadcaster, Author and Co-Founder, This Girl Is on Fire; Amali de Alwis MBE, UK Managing Director, Microsoft for Startups; June Angelides MBE, Early Stage Investor, Entrepreneur, Speaker and Advocate for the Rights of Working Mothers; Debbie Forster MBE, CEO, Tech Talent Charter; Mivy James, Digital Transformation Director, BAE Systems Applied Intelligence; and Sheree Atcheson, Global Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Leader.

We can all choose to challenge and call out gender bias and inequality. We can all choose to seek out and celebrate women’s achievements. Collectively, we can all help create an inclusive world. Never has there been a more important year for us to choose to challenge. The impact of Covid has been incredibly hard on women, bearing the brunt of extra childcare, losing jobs in greater numbers than men, being on the short end of governments support, especially for new mothers. The list goes on!

We also saw all gender pay gap reporting suspended in 2020, which was one of the only measurements of success that we had. A recent article in The Guardian cites that the impact of the pandemic could mean that we are at risk of putting 50 years of progress into reverse. Our voices need to be heard, and what better day to start to raise our collective voices than International Women’s Day.


Each day we will share the stories of three incredible women on our social media channels, culminating in one every hour on the 8th March.

We will also feature a number of these incredible women at our IWD event on 5th March – You can book your place here.

Rising Star Awards 2021

Rising Star Awards: Have you nominated an amazing woman in STEM yet?

Rising Star Awards 2021

Have you nominated an amazing woman in STEM for the Rising Star Awards yet? There are just two weeks left until nominations close!

Now in its seventh year, the Rising Star Awards are the first to focus on the UK’s female talent pipeline below management level. Our strategic goal, set in 2015, aims to showcase 1,000 outstanding women by 2022. By highlighting the accolades of these women, WeAreTheCity are not only promoting the amazing female talent that exists across the UK, but actively encouraging organisations and business leaders to invest in and recognise these women as leaders of tomorrow and individual contributors to their respective industries.

These awards will recognise and celebrate a further 100 female individual contributors from over 20 different industries, including Science & Engineering, Technology and Digital, that represent the leaders and role models of tomorrow. These winners will join our award’s alumni of 650 previous winners, across the UK and India.

NOMINATE AN AMAZING WOMAN IN STEM

Alongside our Rising Star categories, we are also calling for nominations for Champions, Company of the Year, Men for Gender Balance – and new for this year, Global Award for Achievement.

Our Champion award recognises the achievements of five senior individuals, of any gender, who are actively supporting the female pipeline outside of their day job. Nominations for this award are individuals who have demonstrated their commitment to gender, e.g. HeForShe supporters, network leaders, directors, MD’s & C-Suite individuals who are championing women either inside or outside their organisations.

The Men for Gender Balance category is for men who are championing women and gender balance either inside or outside their organisation. Nominees must be at least Director level (or equivalent) or above, and must demonstrate that they have actively supported the female pipeline either through their current work role or external activities.

The Company of the Year award recognises the achievements of a company who can clearly demonstrate that they are actively supporting its female talent pipeline through their initiatives, training, development programmes and internal employee relations and diversity network groups.

The Global Award for Achievement category is for a female individual who works within any industry, outside of the UK, whose current position is below director level.

In previous years, the awards have been supported by an array of FTSE sponsors and this year is no different.

The 2021 Rising Star Awards are powered by the Royal Bank of Canada and supported by 3M, Accenture, Barclays, Bloomberg, the British Army, C&C Search, Cancer Research UK, Citi, CMI Women, Elysian, Goldman Sachs, GSK, Highways Sector Council, HSBC, Lloyd’s Insurance, National Grid, Northern Trust, Oliver Wyman, Oxford Said Business School, and Reed Smith.
