Women in
Rail Award

25 September, 12:30 a.m.
Hall 27 | Stand 511

Despite women comprising over 50% of rail passengers, they represent only about 20% of the rail workforce in the EU. Against this background, the European Commission’s Women in Transport platform, Europe’s Rail Joint Undertaking (EU-Rail), the European Union Agency for Railways (ERA), the Community of European Railway and Infrastructure Companies (CER), the European Rail Supply Industry Association (UNIFE), and Federation of European Train Drivers´ Unions (ALE) have united to launch the Women in Rail Award 2024, to promote fairness, diversity, and equality, and celebrate outstanding and inspiring women and their achievements in the rail sector.

The award recognises the work of a woman, or a group of people led by a woman having demonstrated achievements bringing the EU railway sector forward and/or overcoming obstacles for other women to thrive in the railway sector, or a company/organisation’s outstanding efforts in this regard.
