Primark has pledged to support Retail Week’s Be Inspired campaign, signing up as a partner to promote gender parity in retail.

Launched in 2016, Be Inspired is a global movement focused on inspiring retail talent and building a future pipeline of female chief executives.

It connects women in retail with male and female business leaders who can help propel their careers, inspires them through the stories of others, opens their eyes to work opportunities and fosters a culture of career confidence.

The fashion retailer’s announcement, which makes it Be Inspired’s 21st partner, coincides with the launch of the Be Inspired conference 2019 on today’s International Women’s Day. 

Running for its fourth year, the Be Inspired conference will bring together a diverse portfolio of speakers including The Co-op Food chief executive Jo Whitfield, Sainsbury’s North managing director Bridget Lea and Propercorn founder Cassandra Stavrou to discuss topics such as overcoming adversity, leadership and tackling mental health issues.

Be Inspired’s biggest-ever conference is taking place on Wednesday, 19 June at The Brewery London. Find out more and get your ticket here
