100 Years of Women in Transport Programme
When we launched the 100 Years of Women in Transport (YOWIT) programme, we had two goals:
- To develop our workforce and
- To inspire a new generation of women to build a career in transport
What we did
During the 12 months we profiled and worked with more than 100 women from across the industry. For those women already in the sector, we designed a programme of
- insight sessions
- debates and panel discussions
- workshops and
- speed mentoring events
As well as running a successful ‘Bring your daughter to work’ day, our brilliant YOWIT Schools Champions volunteered their time to visit careers fairs and schools as ambassadors for the industry.
We also launched a Great Schools Debate, in partnership with Bechtel.
Looking to the future
The programme resulted in a network of over 8,000 individuals, supported by more than 260 organisations. And we want to build on this success and YOWIT’s legacy with a range of new initiatives. Watch this space to see what else is happening.
