'Being a woman isn’t a barrier to working in the rail industry'
Why do women make up just 16% of train workers? We meet the women aiming to break the stereotypes and inspire a new generation
Women make up just 16% of the rail industry: that’s a lower proportion than women on FTSE 100 boards (currently 23.5%). In 2012, Adeline Ginn founded Women in Rail, with the aim of providing ongoing support and networking opportunities, as well as promoting the industry as an attractive career choice for other women.
We spoke to Ginn, and some of her fellow women in rail about their career choices, opportunities in the industry and the advice they would offer to others hoping to follow in their footsteps.
