Strength in diversity: Empowering women in the transport sector

Roads Australia is pleased to release a new report following its annual series of IWD lunches across the nation. The report ‘Strength in diversity: Empowering women in the transport sector’, brings together insights from keynote addresses and panel discussions that included some of the most senior transport professionals in the nation. The IWD lunch series was delivered in partnership with the National Women in Transport initiative.

The 68th session of the United Nations’ Commission on the Status of Women shows that we are at a crucial crossroads for gender equity.

The national conversation also comes at an important time for the sector. The challenges facing our industry in truly representing the broader society in which we operate are clear. We must challenge one another to do better, to acknowledge the issues and take action to create a sustainable workforce that actively supports women at every level of operations and every part of the transport supply chain.

Reforming our industry will take time, the journey has well and truly started and the time for excuses is over. We can and must do better and RA is well placed to support industry and government alike in creating a more inclusive industry.
