  • We’ve all seen the research that diverse teams perform better; that the rail sector does not currently reflect the UK population and especially that the rail supply chain is facing an acute demographic challenge. We believe that it’s therefore imperative that we all play our part in showing that the rail sector is an exciting and vibrant place to work.

    Alstom’s commitment to diversity starts at the top, with global goals to increase the diversity of the company worldwide by 2020. In the UK we’ve embedded those commitments into our Sustainability strategy, which sets objectives for the business ranging from the diversity of the intake through to increasing the diversity of the management grades. And we’re encouraging future generations via mentoring schemes supporting mothers and daughters; STEM ambassadors inspiring young engineers; and specific relationships between schools and their local site.

    For the Big Rail Diversity Challenge we are taking the opportunity to bring together two truly diverse teams from across all aspects of our business, based on sites all across the country and ranging from apprentices through graduates and those further into their careers. We can’t wait to see how well they perform!
