Welcome to Women in Logistics 

A message from the CILT Women in Logistics (WiL) Chair: Ruth Waring FCILT 

The Women in Logistics (WiL) vision is to:

“Improve the lives of women in logistics in the UK and address gender imbalance, enabling the logistics industry to benefit from female talent.”

The WiL mission is to:

Attract, retain and support women working in logistics and promote the broader diversity agenda
Provide opportunities for the logistics industry, and other key stakeholders, to support women working in the sector and identify and address the challenges to recruitment and retention

The objectives of the forum are to:

  • Connect – Provide networking and professional development events
  • Engage – To provide a voice for women working in logistics and to address, from a female perspective, key challenges the profession faces
  • Inspire – Provide an inclusive and encouraging environment to nurture female talent within the sector

From humble beginnings in 2008, Women in Logistics has grown to a membership of nearly 4,000. In 2014, the organisation started a process of restructuring in order to cope with the size and to enable us to continue to grow and serve our members. In 2018, Women in Logistics became incorporated into the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT UK), creating a wider platform to extend our reach and continue to engage, connect and inspire the profession.
