Women in Trade Associations

Powerlist 2024

TAF, the Confederation of British Industry (CBI) and the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) are pleased to have joined forces to champion the role of women in trade associations, celebrate their achievements and encourage the next generation of women into the association sector. 

TAF, FSB and CBI are proud to be led by strong female champions and to be supported in our respective organisations by brilliant women at all stages of their careers.

It is our shared ambition to support our own staff and other inspirational women in trade associations to be powerful advocates for diversity and inclusion in their sectors and more widely to support and encourage female business leaders and entrepreneurs.

Thank you to our Women in Trade Association Power List Chair, Nicola Bates, and the Selection Panel
