WCAworld hosts inaugural Women’s Networking Evening

WCAworld members from across the globe came together to celebrate the success of women within the industry.

Last week, ahead of International Women’s Day, the global logistics network, WCAworld, hosted its first-ever Women’s Networking Evening for members. The event, which sold out within the first day of registration, provided a unique opportunity for women in the freight industry to come together, share successes, and foster mutual support.

The WCAworld Women’s Networking Evening drew women from across the industry to connect, collaborate, and celebrate their achievements. The event welcomed a diverse group of women, all passionate about making an impact in the traditionally male-dominated field of freight and logistics.

“Having been in the industry for almost 10 years I have seen a steady increase in women in the industry. Particularly now living in Asia the number of women owners in freight companies in the region is inspiring,” Nicola Hughes, WCAworld’s Business Development Manager, stated.

“While I would never want to take away the achievements of men within the industry, and I have worked with many great men who have taught me so much and continue too, having a diverse range of colleagues, including women, can only add to the success of the industry. And, I hope we can find new ways to attract great female talent to the industry and keep great women here.”
