The theme for the 2020 International Women’s Day campaign is #EachforEqual. An equal world is an enabled world.

How to enter the competition

Take a photograph or selfie in front of a forklift truck with your arms in the position shown and add it to your social media account. This can be on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or LinkedIn. Remember to use ALL THREE hashtags #IWD2020 #EachforEqual #KPT and tag the relevant Key Performance Training Account on that platform, or that of David Gearon or Bob Hayward.

How the winner will be decided:

The winner will be the person whose social media post gets the most likes and shares. The photograph must be of the person who owns that social media account, they must have their arms in the position demonstrated, the post must contain all three hashtags and tag Key Performance or one of the two owners.

Why are we doing this?

At Key Performance Training, we are choosing to challenge stereotypes, broaden perceptions, and seek to be a pathway to better equal employment opportunities.

In the last two years, only five of the 80 delegates who have become qualified forklift operators through Key Performance Training were ladies. There is no reason for forklift operating to be the preserve of our male colleagues. There is no reason that anyone, male or female, must be big, strong or bulky to operate a forklift. The fact is that Forklift Trucks are just as suitable for men and women to drive as are cars.

A career as a Forklift driver is an underrated profession and often overlooked by women who may not recognise the high demand for Forklift operators. Anyone over 16 can drive forklift truck and earnings are above average for warehouse and logistic roles. Forklift driving can be a great pathway into better employment for everyone #EachforEqual
