Celebrating women in franchising is the heart of EWIF. Are you ready to celebrate the achievements of women in your franchise? Nominations for EWIF 2018 awards will soon be open!

At EWIF, we are changing the face of franchising! We are finding ways to give women a much larger presence than they had previously. And we’re proud of the progress we’ve made over the last 10 years… But why stop there?

As we celebrate 10 years of EWIF, we want to world to know we aren’t stopping yet!

This year we’re going to be bigger, better and will fight harder to give women the recognition they deserve within franchising.

Every year we hold our annual awards ceremony, designed to bring together the best women in the industry to celebrate their successes. By recognising the achievements of so many women who are building their own businesses, we aim to encourage more women into the franchise industry.

“It’s exciting to see more and more women coming forward to recognise and celebrate their own achievements. I am delighted to have been a finalist, let alone a winner! Every year we see more women attending and entering the EWIF awards, so this recognition has floored me!” explains Claire Slorach from TONI&GUY, winner of Women Franchisee of the Year 2017.

Our awards provide franchisors, franchisees and employees an important opportunity to boost their business. Award winners can expect to see increased brand exposure and more credibility in their industry, in a society where women are often underestimated, this has never been more important.

“Winning such a prestigious ‘women-focussed’ award is having a massively positive impact on my business. It has already, and will continue to help me make contact and network with other fantastic women franchisors and franchisees, so we can share ideas, innovation (and challenges!) – with other like-minded, entrepreneurial women” adds Rachel Fay from Little Learners, winner of New Woman Franchisor of the Year 2017.

“The EWIF awards are a fantastic way to help women in the franchise industry come together and celebrate and recognise both their own and each other’s achievements. Many of them don’t even realise that most of their achievements are so good because, for them, it’s just part of what they do every day. Many of them dedicate their working lives to supporting others in their businesses and we want them to be celebrated and recognised for this,” explains Clive Sawyer, CEO of EWIF.
