Awards to recognise women in transport and logistics open for entries
The 2021 Everywoman in Transport and Logistics Awards are open for nominations until February next year
A national awards ceremony that celebrates the contribution that women make to the transport and logistics sector is open for entries.
The Everywoman in Transport and Logistics Awards are open for nominations until February 8, 2021.
There are two winners per category; firstly, an industry leader and secondly someone who is going ‘above and beyond’ for their business.
Maxine Benson MBE, Co-Founder of Everywoman, said:
“It has been an extraordinary 12 months for transport and logistics, and one which has seen the industry have to adapt and innovate as never before.
More than ever, it is important that we identify and celebrate the women whose passion, dedication, skills and leadership are making transport and logistics the dynamic and resilient industry that it is, and who have kept the country moving in the most unprecedented of times.”
A key part of the awards programme is to motivate other women to consider a career in the industry.
The ceremony includes a prize for the Male Agent of Change, which rewards the active role of men who support the progress of women in transport and logistics.
The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony on July 8, 2021.
