FTA enters awards with everywoman for transport 12 February 2013

The FTA (Freight Transport Association) has joined forces with the everywoman campaign, becoming the title partner for the FTA everywoman in Transport & Logistics Awards 2013.

"FTA is delighted to encourage forward-thinking companies that are, in turn, committed to encouraging diversity in the freight industry," says Theo de Pencier, FTA chief executive.

"The key for our industry is to be able to access a wider talent pool to be able to meet the need for good quality staff."

FTA has supported everywoman since 2008, including the everywoman in its Transport & Logistics Leadership Academy, and now the FTA everywoman Accelerate Programme.

"The FTA everywoman in Transport & Logistics Awards and the Leadership Academy have a key role to play in addressing some of the challenges faced by women in the sector," comments Max Benson, everywoman co-founder.

"This is a talent issue: women make up nearly half of the UK workforce and yet only 25% of employees in the industry are female."
