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.
Since its launch in 2016, The Big Rail Diversity Challenge has truly captured the hearts and minds of the industry – which demonstrates the passion, support and enthusiasm for the brilliant work that Women in Rail undertakes. Growing by a staggering 80% over 5 years, The Big Rail Diversity Challenge has become a staple in the industry’s event calendar, with many key industry stakeholders supporting year on year.
Women in Rail and Nimble Media Ltd have developed this fun, yet serious, flagship event to allow participants from across all levels to team-build within their own organisation, as well as network with other companies and fundraise to continue the WR charity’s vital work across the UK rail industry.
Back for its seventh year, The Big Rail Diversity Challenge allows companies from across rail to demonstrate their commitment to diversity within the industry, and the business benefits attained by establishing a gender diverse workforce.
