• Nominations open for the 2018 Barclaycard everywoman in Retail Awards

        • The 2018 Barclaycard everywoman in Retail Awards has just launched its search for inspirational individuals excelling in the UK’s retail industry. Women from all stages of their career journey are encouraged to nominate themselves or others, all making a significant contribution to their organisation.

          This year’s awards programme draws on the theme ‘Reimagining Retail’ and will focus on how innovation and technology are revolutionising the retail landscape.

          The retail industry currently employs 3 million people and has a predominantly female workforce. However, research shows that women are far less likely to fill senior positions than men, with director-level roles being 26 per cent female and 74 per cent male. A significant gender pay gap in the retail sector has also been recognised, with the average male manager earning 26.8 per cent more than his female colleagues. 

          Together with new title partner, Barclaycard, the everywoman in Retail Awards hopes to tackle these issues by uncovering the breadth of senior roles available, highlighting the achievements of many successful women already excelling in the sector and showing just how fulfilling a long-term career in retail can be.

          Maxine Benson MBE, Co-founder of Everywoman said, “we are thrilled to have partnered with Barclaycard for the first time for the everywoman in Retail Awards. We are keen to highlight the many opportunities in retail and show that the industry provides more than just jobs, but longstanding careers. It is imperative that we celebrate the role models – both male and female - who are already reshaping the retail landscape, in order to inspire and enable as many women as possible to go from the shop floor to the top floor.”

          Paulette Rowe, Managing Director of Barclaycard Payment Solutions added, “the everywoman in Retail Awards create an opportunity to recognise and celebrate the phenomenal women leading the retail industry. Barclaycard’s ongoing commitment to innovation and technology makes us the perfect partner for these awards. We have worked with retailers for decades and have met many inspiring role models in this continually exciting sector. We hope that these awards will inspire more women to succeed at the very top of the industry.”

          Entries are open from 26th March – 14th May and full details are available online at www.everywoman.com/retailawards. The Barclaycard everywoman in Retail Awards ceremony will take place at East Wintergarden, located between the towers of Canary Wharf in London, on 13th September.
