During the judging process for the top 25 Most Influential Women in UK IT the judges felt that a Rising Star category needed to be added so a handful of the ladies could be acknowledged for their work and their potential.
The criteria for Rising Star was: "An up-and-coming lady who did not make the top 25, but is someone who you feel is likely to be a contender to make the list next year."
