Reinventing retail
Nominations now open for the 2017 Worldpay Everywoman in Retail Ambassadors Programme.

The 2017 Worldpay Everywoman in Retail Ambassador Programme has launched its search for the industry’s most inspiring female role models.
 
This year’s theme, Reinventing Retail, recognises technology and the role it has played in transforming the retail industry. This year’s 10th anniversary programme is inviting nominations by and for women whose career triumphs have shown true vision and inspiration.
 
As the UK’s largest private sector employer, the retail industry is expected to increase its recruitment requirements by 14 per cent in 2017. Digital development is set to be a major part of this growth, with brands investing heavily to add value to customer experiences and increase the efficiency of operations within the business.
 
Retailers are already exploring enhanced shopping experiences such as personal recognition, digital wallets, artificial intelligence and robotics, all of which are set to further transform the way we shop.
 
Maxine Benson MBE, co-founder of everywoman, says, “We’re proud to have reached this ten-year milestone of celebrating women in retail. 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.”
 
She continues, “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 the 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.”
 
There is no cost to nominate and the deadline for applications is 15 May 2017. For further details visit www.everywoman.com/retail-ambassadors
