#WomenInRetail

The 2017 Worldpay everywoman in Retail Ambassador

Programme has just launched its 10

th

anniversary search for the

industry’s most inspiring female role models. Drawing on the

theme of Reinventing Retail, this year’s programme recognises the

role that technology has played in the transformation of the retail

industry over recent years as well as what its impact is predicted to

be in the future.

As the UK’s largest private sector employer, the retail industry

is expected to increase its recruitment requirements by 14 per cent

in 2017 up to 3.3million employees, demonstrating the growth of

opportunities within this fast-evolving sector.

Digital development is the hot prediction for 2017 with brands

investing heavily to add value to customer experiences and increase

the efficiency of operations within the business. Major 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.

This year’s 10

th

anniversary programme is inviting nominations

by and for women whose career triumphs have shown true

vision and inspiration.The programme’s mission is to celebrate

individuals whose success makes them an ambassador for their

industry and a role model for other women and young girls

considering a career in retail.They will be women of all ages, at

different stages in their careers and with wide ranging skills.They

may include entrepreneurs with innovative retail businesses or

those whose talents are contributing to positive change in the

organisations they work for.

Maxine Benson MBE, co-founder of everywoman comments,

“We’re proud to have reached this 10-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.

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 those 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.”

Kirsty Whitehead, General Counsel at Worldpay UK continues,

“Worldpay is proud to be supporting everywoman for another

year and we’re delighted to be sponsoring the everywoman in

Retail Ambassador Programme. At Worldpay we’re in a privileged

position to work with hundreds of thousands of retailers of all sizes

across the UK, helping them take card payments instore, online

and on the move. I’m looking forward to hearing the inspirational

stories of some of the women who are excelling in this dynamic

sector and celebrating their success on a national stage.”
