Women in Wholesale (WiW) is partnering with the Federation of Wholesale Distributors (FWD) to get more female wholesalers recognised and rewarded at the Skills and Development Awards, taking place on 6th November at the Houses of Parliament.
These non-competitive awards celebrate the achievements of wholesale people who have made a significant commitment to their employer and the sector as a whole through apprenticeships, training and academic study.
Entries are not judged – FWD and WiW members are invited to select members of their team who have taken on training and career development courses in the past two years.
The winners will be invited to the House of Commons to meet ministers and MPs – through this, we demonstrate that wholesalers are investing in talented people and deserve the support of Government in doing so.
Nominations are for wholesalers only can be for people of any age or experience, and from any discipline across the wholesale sector. You may be asked to provide evidence of structured training and/or the involvement of an external training provider.
Nominations can be sent to Nikki@fwd-uk.com
The FWD will be in touch to confirm your successful registration to join us for drinks and celebration at the Houses of Parliament, where you will receive a Skills and Development Award and have your picture taken by a professional photographer.
There is no charge for the event and you can bring colleagues along to support you.
The event takes place at 4pm on November 6th 2018 in the Thames Pavilion at the Houses of Parliament, London. We hope to see you there!
About Women in Wholesale
WiW is an educational networking event set up in 2016 to inspire, support and progress women working in wholesale on both the wholesale and FMCG side. Following a successful conference, a mid-conference event was launched to support peer networking and launch useful resources. A WiW Steering Committee was set up in 2017 to support the growth and development of the initiative. WiW delegates are 80% female and 20% male. The majority of attendees are UK grocery and foodservice wholesalers, followed by FMCG brands. For more information visit: http://www.newerapr.co.uk/women-in-wholesale/
