WeAreTheCity’s Rising Star Awards focus on the UK’s female talent pipeline below management level and celebrate 100 females from across different industries and professions who represent the leaders and role models of tomorrow. 

A past honouree of Forbes 30 Under 30, Tara has forged a successful career since graduating and is a known expert in green transport and infrastructure solutions, digital and artificial intelligence (AI) strategies for mobility, and Middle Eastern energy politics. The 31-year-old credits her Masters in Engineering from the University of Cambridge as having been “pivotal” in providing her with the valuable technical knowledge she required in order to gain understanding of large scale infrastructure needs.
