There aren’t enough female leaders in the grocery industry, and it’s our mission to change that. 

FESTIVE NETWORKING EVENT

With our busy lives, it’s so easy to constantly look forward, focusing on the next task or setting a new goal. But if we don’t stop and take note of how far we’ve come and celebrate what we’ve achieved, we risk never seeing how much we’ve learnt and appreciating who we are. 

This year, reflecting and feeling like we’ve made progress has been hard, but it’s more important than ever. 

ABOUT US

THE GROCERY GIRLS

Founded by Jo Whitfield, CEO of Co-op Food, we’re a social enterprise focused on increasing female representation in senior roles. 

We do this by coaching, inspiring and empowering women so they’re ready and able to grab hold of senior roles. We also work to challenge bias and help everyone in the industry understand the importance of a diverse workforce.
