A Welwyn woman had her contributions to retail recognised in the form of an ambassadorial role.

Rebecca Douglas, an energy manager at Tesco, was one of 12 women to be appointed as an ambassador for the Worldpay everywoman in Retail Ambassador Programme.

It aims to help the advancement of women in business, and Rebecca’s “instrumental” role in the award-winning Energy Ambassador Programme earned her the recognition.

Maxine Benson MBE, co-founder of everywoman, said: “This year’s ambassadors are true advocates for “reinventing retail”, with all judges agreeing they are an incredibly impressive example of the best of retail talent.

“Their success stories are exactly what the industry needs to prove how much diversity there is among ever-evolving retail job roles.

“As they prepare to become everywoman ambassadors, we’re confident they’ll have a lasting impact on the retail industry by inspiring talented women to follow in their footsteps”
