Flexible working was voted the biggest challenge for more than half of women working in wholesale.

That’s according to research published in Women in Wholesale’s (WiW) Six Steps To Nurture, Grow and Advance Talent in Wholesale report.

Career path (43%) and respect (38%) were also voted the main challenge for women working in the sector.

The research also found that 95% of respondents said that gender diversity leads to better business, but almost a quarter (24%) said that more could be done to create a gender inclusive culture.

Elit Rowland, founder and organiser of WiW, said: “At our inaugural conference last year, 100% of delegates said that they’d like something actionable to take away. Today we are making that available, free of charge, together with some ground-breaking research.”

Wholesalers and manufacturers are being invited to share progress at the WiW conference, which will be held at the Birtish Library, London, on 19 October.
