About Women in Wholesale
WiW is an educational networking event set up in 2016 to inspire, support and progress women working in wholesale on both the wholesale and FMCG side. Following a successful conference, a mid-conference event was launched to support peer networking and launch useful resources. A WiW Steering Committee was set up in 2017 to support the growth and development of the initiative. WiW delegates are 80% female and 20% male. The majority of attendees are UK grocery and foodservice wholesalers, followed by FMCG brands. WiW has launched two reports – Six Steps to Advance Talent in Wholesale and How to Market Wholesale Jobs to Women. In 2018 WiW was awarded Best Business Initiative of the Year at the Grocer Gold Awards. Elit Rowland was announced a Timewise Top 50 Power Part Timer in 2020.
