Women in Rail, a charity founded in 2012, comprises men and women from the UK railway sector, working alongside major stakeholders in the industry to address the current gender balance and diversity challenges faced within the rail sector and close the skills gap.
For a bigger and better future, the railway industry needs to reach a place where its workforce is diverse. To meet this objective, it is vital to support and develop female talent and promote rail as a career of choice. Women in Rail provides a support platform for all women working in UK rail. Across the country, the charity holds networking events for both women and men, empowering workshops, runs a successful mentoring programme and regularly showcases female roles and talent in UK rail.
Women in Rail’s head office is in London with regional groups across the UK including Scotland, North West, Yorkshire, Wales, West Midlands, East Midlands and the South West. Membership of Women in Rail is free.
