The November 2022 issue of Railway Age is now available digitally, showcasing our Women in Rail honorees.
Railway Age’s sixth-annual Women in Rail program recognizes 23 women, who excel at leadership, serving the community and contributing to the industry. These strong women—plus five earning Honorable Mention—were selected from more than 100 applicants working in the North American freight, passenger and supply sectors.
“The honorees deserve not just our recognition with an award, but also our thanks for making the industry more accessible to a broader range of talents and perspectives,” said KellyAnne Gallagher, CEO of the Commuter Rail Coalition, who served as a program judge with Barbara Wilson, former RailUSA LLC President and CEO, with input from Railway Age staff.
“The 2022 honorees’ propensity for going above what is required makes their contributions even more important in these challenging times,” Wilson said.
