Women in Rail was created to improve diversity in the UK rail industry. The charity achieves this through providing networking opportunities and support for all women within the sector, encouraging companies and stakeholders to adopt diversity as a business strategy and devising initiatives aimed at positioning rail as an attractive career choice for young people.
Back for its fifth year, Women in Rail and event organisers, Nimble Media Ltd, are proud to present ‘The Big Rail Diversity Challenge’ 2020.
A cross between “It’s a Knockout” and “Krypton Factor”, The Big Rail Diversity Challenge provides participants with an opportunity to network, team build and fundraise whilst undertaking fun gender-balanced team challenges.
“The Big Rail Diversity Challenge is an important step in the rail industry agenda. It openly tackles rail’s outdated image, demonstrates that the industry engages both men and women in equal measure and shows our sector’s commitment to improving gender balance, diversity and inclusion in order to create a more attractive, productive and successful workforce.” Adeline Ginn, founder of Women in Rail.
The Big Rail Diversity Challenge delivers the Women in Rail values by showing that gender diverse teams raise awareness for women working across the rail industry and the business benefit attained when companies improve gender balance.
