ECT Charity is delighted to announce that our CEO, Anna Whitty, has been shortlisted as a finalist for Director of the Year in the 2014 Freight Transport Association (FTA) everywoman in Transport & Logistics Awards, after being nominated by ECT’s bankers, RBS.
The FTA everywoman in Transport & Logistics Awards were founded to raise awareness of the wealth of opportunities offered by the industry and to show the variety of fulfilling careers available, particularly for women.
The awards shine a spotlight on twenty-five female champions, with the aim of highlighting their successes to encourage more women to bring their skills to the industry and inspire them to excel.
Maxine Benson MBE, co-founder of everywoman, comments, “As Britain forges ahead in its economic recovery, logistics remain essential to its infrastructure. This fast growth sector has announced a huge recruitment drive and diversity is high on the agenda with a huge variety of opportunity. We congratulate this year’s finalists who have demonstrated that their gender is no barrier to success and that opportunity exists at every level of the career ladder.”
Anna Whitty, CEO of ECT Charity said, “ It is a huge honour to be put forward for this award. It is important that the successes of women in the sector are noticed, and I hope it inspires many more to choose transport as a career option. Moreover, these awards will help to raise the profile of community transport, which is key to attracting the highest-calibre staff and help charities such as ECT to remain successful.”
The winners of the FTA everywoman in Transport & Logistics Awards will be announced at the awards ceremony, held on the 13 May 2014 at The Savoy, London. For more information on the awards, visit: http://www.everywoman.com/award/about/10
