Parliamentarians from across the political spectrum have confirmed their continued support to tackle the under-representation of women in the transport sector workforce.
Ruth Cadbury MP was re-appointed as Chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) for Women in Transport at the group’s AGM on 18 December 2018.
During 2019, the group will hold a series of events in Parliament to discuss and overcome the under-representation of women in transport.
The group’s next event, to be held in the spring, will explore initiatives that have been most successful in leading to increased recruitment and retention of women in transport. The APPG is looking for partners to support the event so please contact the APPG Secretariat (Jo Field or Christine Hurley) if this is of interest.
The following Parliamentarians have been re-appointed as officers of the APPG for Women in Transport:
Vice-Chair: Baroness Jenny Randerson, Liberal Democrats
Officers: Baroness Margaret Prosser, Labour; Sir Peter Bottomley MP, Conservative; Jess Phillips MP, Labour
Members: Richard Burden MP, Labour; Lilian Greenwood MP, Labour; Drew Hendry MP, SNP; Rupa Huq MP, Labour; Rachael Maskell MP, Labour; Jo Swinson MP, Liberal Democrats
Women in Transport will continue to provide secretariat support to the APPG for Women in Transport.
