46 individuals from the UK’s thriving Transport & Logistics industry have been announced today as finalists in the 2019 everywoman in Transport & Logistics Awards programme including Women in Transport board members, Neil Pepper and Mailys Pineau.
From freight and rail to retail and architecture, they showcase the range of opportunities that redefine an industry traditionally seen to offer manual, male-dominated jobs.
This year’s awards programme will see two winners per category - one industry “Leader” with a breadth of experience and one individual at any stage of their career, who is going “Above and Beyond” in their business sector. An “Industry Champion” Award will shine the light on a woman contributing to the progress of other women, while a “Male Agent of Change” will be recognised for his commitment to gender diversity. For the first time in 2019, the industry’s fresh talent will also be celebrated by the “Apprentice of the Year” Award.
We are delighted to see Neil Pepper MBE, Renewals and Enhancements Night Construction Manager at TfL, as a finalist in the Male Agent of Change category. Neil is a brilliant male ally and it’s great to see him recognised for his active commitment to advancing the progress of women working in transport and logistics. Thanks to our Women in Transport member Milda Pladaite for her hardwork on the nomination.
Congratulations to Mailys Pineau, Principal Consultant, Momentum Transport who is a finalist in the Leader category for the Customer / Passenger Award, for women excelling in their role for customers / passengers in transport, logistics and freight. Well done Mailys!
It’s wonderful to see three other Women in Transport members in the finalists list today:
Jenni Wiggle, Senior Director, Living Streets, as a finalist in the same category as Mailys.
Claire Rose, Senior Construction Manager, HS2, in the Infrastructure Award for women who are innovating or excelling in their role within transportation and infrastructure.
Sharon Duffy, Head of Transport Infrastructure, TfL Engineering, for the Industry Champion Award for a woman who is championing the progress of women working in transport and logistics.
Congratulations to all the finalists and we wish everyone the best of luck for awards night on 13 June!
