World Retail Congress 2019

 

Women in Retail

Women in Retail

The Women in Retail programme brings together top female retail executives to celebrate and champion the achievements of women in the industry, whilst facilitating mentoring and discussion.

For the last four years, the programme has mainly consisted of the International Women in Retail networking reception, combining a wonderful venue such as the Burj al Arab in Dubai or the Teatro Real in Madrid with inspirational speakers such as Jo Malone. The evening is also highlighted by the presentation of the Woman of the Year Award. The 2018 winner was Laura Alber, President & CEO of Williams-Sonoma, Inc.

It is our goal for Congresses in the future to achieve gender parity on stage and off. We want more women within the industry to have a seat at the table, have their voices heard and be seen to lead. We also want them to have the support they need through networks, mentors and learning – opportunities we will be providing at the Congress moving forward.

We are offering 100 places for women in the retail industry to attend the Congress free of charge. This is open to a) those who have never attend the Congress before b) working at mid-managerial level and above c) working for a retailer, brand of FMCG company. If you would like to nominate yourself or a female colleague, please fill out the form below.

New for 2019

In 2019, we will be introducing a more comprehensive programme of breakfasts and mentoring for women in retail. If you would be interested in becoming a speaker or mentor, please contact us here
