The Australian Retailers Association (ARA) Women in Retail Series strives to recognise the various roles women play in the retail industry, from the employees, managers, executives, and business owners, as each individual works hard to maintain the vitality of the sector.
Our Women in Retail series has been created to inspire people by sharing the stories behind the success of the female retail leaders who have shaped the industry into what it is today.
With the retail industry comprised of 57.7% of women, the ARA believes it is essential to celebrate the diverse range of influential female leaders who work tirelessly to ensure the longevity of the retail industry.
While the industry yet to achieve true gender equality, the ARA understands the significance of this issue and is dedicated to supporting and advocating on behalf of women in retail to ensure that industry achieves gender parity in the future.
As Australia’s peak retail industry body, we want to ensure that the leaders of tomorrow are empowered to consider a job in retail as a prosperous and fulfilling career.
The ARA appreciates the extraordinary achievements made by female leaders who have contributed immensely to the success of the $320 billion-dollar retail sector and is proud to support women within the industry through this series.
Whether you're to start your own business or simply seeking some motivation to get you through a busy week, our collection of personal stories will take you on a journey into some of Australia's most passionate female retail leaders. These stories cover the success, hardships, triumphs, the late nights, and hard work that goes into running a business.
So stop what you're doing, take a breath, make some tea and soak in these inspirational stories from fierce female leaders.
