RAIL is the voice of the rail industry – and is held in such high esteem, it is the only title in the industry the Department for Transport subscribes to. The market-leading modern railway magazine has an outstanding website and event portfolio, bringing its audience breaking news as well as unrivalled opinion and insight. There aren’t many brands that are so influential they’re read in Whitehall by government employees. RAIL is one of them.
Rail is a vibrant and exciting industry that offers enormous opportunities for fulfilling careers where individuals get to make a real, tangible difference to others. Why would we want to restrict those opportunities to only one group of people? Our best chance of success as an industry is through encouraging everyone, regardless of their gender or background to see the rail sector as their chance for an exciting future. Finding innovative and fun ways to get people thinking about how to achieve this and how to break down the barriers to rail diversity is vital – the Big Rail Diversity Challenge is a brilliant example of just that.
