NEW Legacy Project Poses Big Questions to Retail Industry


CHICAGO -- The Network of Executive Women (NEW)" launched The NEW Legacy Project, an online contest that will honor the consumer product goods (CPG) and retail industry's most inspirational leaders and gather the legacies that its members are living today and leaving to others.

The NEW Legacy Project asks industry members to describe the legacy they would like to leave; honor someone who changed their life; honor a leader who has left a lasting legacy to the industry; vote for an inspirational female figure who has inspired them; or submit a photo. The most inspiring statements and photos will be shared at the NEW Executive Leaders Forum, taking place July 21 to Aug. 2 in Los Angeles.

"The NEW Legacy Project is about the legacies you've been given, the ones you live today and the ones you'll pass on to the next generation," said NEW President and CEO Joan Toth. "The Network will share the industry's responses to help our members and others create a vision for themselves and inspire their colleagues in the CPG/retail industry."

Industry members who contribute by July 20 can win $500 or 50 other prizes. Contributions may signed or anonymous. To enter, visit the NEW's Facebook page.

One randomly selected grand-prize winner will receive a $500 American Express gift card. Fifty others will receive a brushed metal 4-by-6-inch "My Legacy" photo frame. Participants must be 18 years old and a member of the CPG and retail industry to enter.
