The 4th session in the Gender on the Agenda series will explore how the transport sector needs to evolve to enhance women’s professional opportunities and deliver better outcomes for all transport users.
Says Ruth Cadbury, MP and Chair of the APPG for Women in Transport:
'We have an ingrained perception in this country that transport is a ‘male’ profession. This belief has long affected women’s experiences and progression in transport and has contributed to low attraction and retention rates for women in the sector. Improving the representation of women working in transport is vital to ensure that transport is influenced by, and is representative of, the public that uses it.
'Without female voices shaping transport policy, design and services, we lose valuable insight into how to make the future of transport beneficial for all.
'To improve the situation and increase gender balance in the industry, we need to understand the issues that are currently affecting women.'
