Everywoman awards open for entries

12 December 2018

The 2019 Everywoman in Transport and Logistics Awards is now open for entries, celebrating the achievements of women in business.

Nominees have until February 11, 2019, to submit their entries, which are free of charge.

Launched 11 years ago, Everywoman demonstrates the breadth of opportunities within the industry along with highlighting the career journeys of those who have made a real impact via their occupations.

Everywoman’s co-founder, Maxine Benson MBE, said: “Each year our awards play a vital role in changing the perception of the transport and logistics industry.

“With each success story shared by our nominees, more women are inspired to explore the variety of fulfilling careers in this ever-evolving industry.

“This year, we are highlighting the role that technology plays in creating even more opportunities in the industry and how this identifies the need for many different skills.

“And because we know that businesses with a more gender diverse workforce are 46% more likely to outperform those without, it is imperative that more women enter the industry.”

The awards will recognise two winners per category; one successful industry leader, and one individual at any stage in their career who is going “Above and Beyond” for the business they work for.

The 2019 awards categories are:

  • The Freight Award – This will be awarded to two women who are innovating and excelling in their role within freight (not including passenger transport).
  • The Customer / Passenger Award – This will be awarded to two women who are excelling in their role for customers / passengers in transport, logistics and freight.
