Everywoman 2022 Awards now open

[ November 29, 2021   //   ]

Nominations are now open until 7 February 2022 for the Amazon Everywoman in Transport and Logistics Awards. Now in their 15th year, the awards celebrate the vital contribution women make to transport and logistics showcasing progression, accomplishments and increasing avenues of opportunity within a traditionally male-dominated industry.

The COVID-19 crisis threw transport and logistics into the spotlight as never before, and the pressure has seen an increase in women entering the industry for the first time. However, there is much more to be done.

Part of the solution to the lack of female recruits is to showcase role models to women and girls who may not see the Transport and Logistics industry as an option for them,  and the awards aim to do just that by celebrating the women keeping the country moving.

There will be two winners per category (Leader and Above and Beyond) as well as one recipient of the Industry Champion, Male Agent of Change, Apprentice of the Year and Woman of the Year Award. In recognition of the significant role technology has played in transforming the sector, particularly during the pandemic, 2022 will see the continued “Tech Innovation Award” that was established last year.

The 2022 award categories include the Freight Award – awarded to two winners exemplifying the excellence, drive and innovation of women across the freight subsector; the Supply Chain Award; the Warehousing Award; the Industry Champion Award ; the International Inspiration Award for those working outside of the UK and Ireland; the Apprentice Award; the Male Agent of Change; and the Tech innovator Award.
