On the 19th June, Women in the City announced the 2017 Finalists at the Future Leaders Award Celebration Dinner held at Chartered Accountants’ Hall in the heart of the City of London.
The Future Leaders Award was developed to recognise achievements to date and the leadership potential of women working in larger companies in the UK.
Now in its eighth year, this Award has delivered on its original promise to ensure a pipeline of talent for the C-suite, executive committee and board.
Gwen Rhys, Founder & CEO of Women in the City, said:
"The standard of applications this year was extremely high and I’m grateful to all the Judges on the three selection panels for the time and dedication they’ve shown to help select our Finalists.
I have no doubt they will follow in the footsteps of previous Finalists who have all gone on to be promoted and/or secure more stretching roles within their organisations. I shall watch their progress with interest."
Sky's finalist Shivani Uberoi, Head of Women in Leadership, said:
"I am delighted to be selected as a finalist for the Women in the City Future Leaders Award.
This is an excellent opportunity to showcase and celebrate the scale of female talent in industries and locations across the UK. It is an honour to be shortlisted next to such impressive and talented women."
