From humble beginnings in 2008, Women in Logistics has grown to a membership of over 3,500. The Women in Logistics mission is to attract, retain and support women working in logistics and promote the broader diversity agenda. WiL also provides opportunities for the logistics industry, and other key stakeholders, to support women working in the sector and identify and address the challenges to recruitment and retention.
The objectives of the organisation are to:
- Connect – Provide networking and professional development events, both physically and virtually
- Engage – Offer support and mentoring and showcase the achievements of role-model women, as well as provide a voice for women working in logistics and addressing, from a female perspective, key challenges the industry faces.
- Inspire – Provide an inclusive and encouraging environment to nurture female talent within the sector.
