Advancing women in transport
“Increasing the representation of London Underground’s workforce is important in order for us to achieve our ambitious plans in the service of the great city that is London. Women in Transport are an extremely valued partner in this essential modernisation of not just London Underground but all of the transport sector.”
Mark Wild, Managing Director, London Underground
Women make up 47 per cent of the UK workforce yet remain underrepresented in the transport sector accounting for only 22 per cent of workers.
Women in Transport is a not-for-profit that empowers women to maximise their potential. Membership provides exclusive access to our extensive events programme including behind the scenes tours, professional development workshops, networking opportunities and to the All Party Parliamentary Group for women in transport and our mentoring programme.
Men and women are welcome to join - we believe that by working together we can promote a diverse and strong transport workforce that supports UK growth.
Less than £5 per month provides exclusive access to more than 12 events per year.
Our dedicated team of volunteers is supported by one part-time member of staff. The continued support of our corporate sponsors and partners allows us to keep our membership fee low and accessible to support all women working in the transport sector.
Women in Transport are a great bunch to engage with for fantastic networking opportunities and unique transport related opportunities.
— Neil Pepper MBE, Night Safety Manager, TfL
Campaigning for more women in transport
The All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) for Women in Transport is a cross-party group of MPs and Peers, launched in 2016, to tackle under representation of women in transport. Women in Transport act as Secretariat for the APPG.
Our key corporate sponsors provide invaluable support for Women in Transport demonstrating their commitment to equality and diversity and supporting the professional development of women across the transport sector.
