The Everywoman in Retail Ambassador Programme has launched its search for the industry’s most inspiring female role models.
Drawing on the theme of “Reinventing Retail”, this year’s programme – the 10th anniversary year – recognises the role that technology plays in the transformation of retail over recent years as well as what its future impact could be.
Nominations are now open for women of all ages and all stages in their careers whose achievements have shown vision and inspiration.
The programme’s aim is to celebrate individuals whose success makes them an ambassador for their industry and a role model for other women and young girls considering a career in retail.
“We’re proud to have reached this ten-year milestone of celebrating women in retail,” Everywoman co-founder Maxine Benson said.
“As we look back, it is fantastic to see what an impact this programme has had on the careers of our previous Ambassadors and how their success continues to grow.
“A major focus for retailers is delivering the ideal customer service. With research showing that gender diverse organisations are more innovative and in touch with their customer base, this year’s programme will shine the spotlight on those women who are going above and beyond to ensure that customer expectations are met.
“They will be extraordinary women whose careers and stories are inspiring others to see the diversity that retail offers.”
The 2017 Ambassadors will be announced at an awards ceremony on September 12 in London.
It’s free to nominate and the deadline for applications is May 15. Details: everywoman.com/retail-ambassadors
