The Everywoman Awards celebrates the women who are transforming the transport & logistics industry and Pride and Joy's Jane Phillips has been named as one of 60 finalists representing the most outstanding individuals working in transport and logistics today.

From freight and rail to retail and air transport, the finalists showcase the crucial positions women hold in transport and logistics, demonstrating progression, accomplishment, increasing avenues of opportunity within the industry and redefining a sector that has long been viewed as male-dominated.

Championing industry apprenticeships for young women, mentoring their peers and campaigning to close the gender pay gap, these individuals prove how women at all stages of their career journey are fundamental in keeping a diverse hierarchy across every sector of transport and logistics, a focal point in delivering economic benefits for businesses.

Jane has been shortlisted in the category that recognises women who are going Above and Beyond for their business and will be awarded to a woman who is innovating and excelling in her role within the supply chain environment.

Maxine Benson MBE, Co-Founder of everywoman, comments, “We are thrilled to announce the finalists for the 2020 Amazon everywoman in Transport & Logistics Awards. With the Coronavirus outbreak shining a spotlight on how crucial our transport and logistics sector is, celebrating role models and creating a strong pipeline of female talent is more important now than ever before. At an uncertain time, it is clear that long-term risk management and innovation in problem- solving will be vital to ensure the future of the industry and these are skills that show marked improvement within companies where women fill leadership roles**.”

Sally Austin, Chief HR Officer at Wincanton, adds “We are incredibly proud to sponsor the Amazon everywoman in Transport and Logistics Awards, celebrating the development and progression of female talent in our industry. Wincanton aspires to develop a culture where our people feel valued, enabling them to be at their best.

everywoman – the leading expert for the advancement of women in business – is committed to celebrating the UK’s brightest female talent, using the awards as a platform to applaud their success. Since the inception of the awards 13 years ago, more women have taken up senior roles in transport and logistics, but still account for just 20% of the overall workforce*, showing that there is more work to be done to attract female talent to the sector.

The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony in London 06 October 2020 at Grosvenor House London.
