Although the organisation is new to NAWO, Linfox has not wasted time ‘testing the waters’. With CEO Annette Carey taking on the role of NAWO Ambassador and Linfox joining as a Gold Corporate Member in 2016, the organisation celebrated with a NAWO launch event in May, complete with NAWO and Linfox branded cupcakes!
Linfox invited women from across the business to the launch of its partnership with the National Association of Women in Operations (NAWO).
Linfox became a proud corporate member of NAWO earlier this year.
Based in Australia, NAWO aims to develop and support the pipeline of women working in operational functions as they progress through to leadership and executive roles.
According to NAWO’s National Director Louise Weine, women only represent a fraction of employees in the transport sector, with the majority of these in administrative and support roles.
The launch celebrated Linfox’s shared commitment to inspire and drive positive
change in gender diversity. Linfox Australia and New Zealand CEO Annette Carey is a proud NAWO Ambassador, “Through NAWO, our female employees have access to professional development, leadership programs and networking events.”
“It was fabulous to be part of the official launch of NAWO at Linfox,” said NAWO National Director, Louise Weine. “There was a very positive vibe in the room during the presentations. Tania Matthews entertained us with her personal career story and there was vibrant discussion afterwards as participants indulged in superb NAWO/Linfox cupcakes. We are very much looking forward to greeting Linfox employees participating in our events and programs in every state in the near future.”
