JERSEY CITY, N.J. -- Women don't just hold a significant percentage of the store manager positions in the convenience store industry, they also have made great strides in upper management, breaking the glass ceiling in what was once a male-dominated business.
This year, Convenience Store News is launching the industry’s first Top Women in Convenience awards. This program seeks to recognize a diverse array of females in the convenience retail industry, including leaders, mentors and role models.
The nomination period opens today. Nominees can include:
- Senior-level executives (retailer, wholesaler and supplier execs who work within the c-store channel of trade)
- Rising stars (retailers, suppliers and wholesalers with job titles above store manager, but below vice president)
- Store managers
Compiled from achievements during the previous 12 months, nominations should illustrate a candidate’s innovative corporate initiatives, extraordinary financial and strategic accomplishments, astute problem-solving acumen, exceptional performance and selfless charitable participation, among other attributes that go above and beyond the call of duty.
Judging will be conducted by CSNews in conjunction with the Network of Executive Women (NEW). Top Women in Convenience winners will be recognized in the June issue of Convenience Store News.
