Entries open for 2012 Specsavers Everywoman in Retail Awards

Everywoman, the membership network for women in business, is inviting entries for the 2012 Specsavers Everywoman in Retail Awards. Now in their fifth year, the awards recognise the achievements of women working in the retail sector.

Entries open for 2012 Specsavers Everywoman in Retail Awards

The organisers said that by highlighting inspirational female role models who are excelling in the sector, the awards help to showcase the "exceptional" opportunities offered to women by a career in retail. They also help to encourage a pipeline of future talent to the industry. 
 
Maxine Benson, co-founder of Everywoman commented: "Retail is an attractive sector offering flexibility and the opportunity to learn transferable skills. Given that women are estimated to be responsible for around 70% of household purchasing decisions clearly it is essential that the management of retail companies reflects the demographic of their customer base.

"The economic climate means retailers need to think intelligently to remain competitive. Those companies that nurture and progress their female talent will be those most likely to reap success."

Dame Mary Perkins, founder of Specsavers added: "There are some excellent opportunities for women in the retail industry.  Although there are not as many women in senior positions as there should be, there are many good prospects.  At Specsavers, many of our stores are owned by female opticians who recognise the importance of excellent customer service and high retail standards."

The awards are open for entry until 14 May 2012. The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony at London’s Savoy Hotel on 13 September 2012.
