Justin Trotman, MD Transport Operations, FedEx Express Europe
As a father of two girls, I want to be part of a progressive network that changes people’s beliefs and attitudes to women in business. I want them to believe that there are no boundaries for women and that they can build a career on their abilities and skills. I want them to work for an organisation like FedEx that believes that all people no matter their race, colour or gender have the same opportunities. People are our organisations biggest assets and we need to include everyone in order to make it successful and build for the future.

Diversity and inclusion are important to me as they demonstrate fairness and consistency.
As an organization, we need to attract the most talented people, we need to grow and retain our existing employees, to do this they need to see that they will have equal access to career and development opportunity. In the ever-changing business world, we need a vast array of skills so that we are continually challenging the norm and maintaining our competitive advantage. We need different people.
