IAG Cargo, the cargo division of International Airlines Group (IAG), announces its role as a sponsor at the 2023 everywoman in Transport & Logistics Awards. IAG Cargo will sponsor The Infrastructure Award, celebrating the outstanding achievements of two women in infrastructure.
Launched in 2008, the everywoman in Transport & Logistics Awards aim to inspire more women to progress careers within a traditionally male-dominated industry. With women only accounting for 20% of the 1.7 million people working in transport and logistics, the awards seek to create role models that will inspire future female talent who may not see the industry as an option to them.
Historically, the awards have positively impacted careers with 63% of former winners saying it improved their personal and professional confidence.
Caroline Andrews, chief people officer at IAG Cargo said: “Our focus on inclusion and embracing equity, means we are committed to increasing visibility of female leaders across the industry. At IAG Cargo, our inclusive ethos encourages women of all ages to grow and develop their careers with us. We are making it our mission to ensure IAG Cargo continues to be a great place to work for everybody and it is for this reason we are proud to be a sponsor at the Transport & Logistics Awards, celebrating the women whose resilience and leadership has kept the country, in many cases the world, moving in persistently demanding times.”
Voting for nominations will remain open until 6 February 2023 and winners will be announced at an award ceremony in London on 28 June.
