‘Rail Insights: Women in Rail’ Event Set for Nov. 10Written by Railway Age Staff
Railway Age’s inaugural Rail Insights: Women in Rail Conference features a dialogue with the industry’s top women leaders.
The Nov. 10 conference, presented virtually beginning at 1:30 p.m. ET, not only explores how they broke through the glass ceiling, but also recruiting and mentoring best practices appealing to the new generation, how women are accelerating and shaping ESG (environmental, social and governance) and DEI (diversity, equity and inclusion) initiatives, and more.
The lineup of speakers includes Katie Farmer of BNSF; Corina Moore of Ontario Northland; Cindy Sanborn of Norfolk Southern; Beth Whited of Union Pacific; Laurie Dornan of The Greenbrier Companies; KellyAnne Gallagher of the Commuter Rail Coalition; Jean Savage of Trinity Industries, Inc.; Patty Long of the Railway Supply Institute; Barbara Wilson, formerly of RailUSA LLC; Jenny Bush of Cummins, Inc.; and Merritt Canfield of Meritus Executive Search. They’ll engage in informal, “fireside chat” style conversation with Railway Age Executive Editor Marybeth Luczak and Senior Editor Carolina Worrell.
Since 2017, Railway Age has recognized the growth in leadership roles for women in the railway industry with our annual Women in Rail Awards. In fact, Corina Moore is among our first honorees, and was the first woman to appear on the cover of Railway Age since its inception in 1856.
The 2022 Rail Insights: Women in Rail Conference is your opportunity to participate in a dialogue with key women who are driving their businesses forward while making a difference and effecting change. These outstanding women are making their mark in a historically male-dominated industry with a fresh vision, as well as a commitment to service and collaboration.
In addition to its speakers, our 2022 Rail Insights: Women in Rail Conference is being supported by a number of sponsors, including TrinityRail (platinum); BNSF (gold); and Union Pacific (bronze).
Registration includes access to the three-hour live event, as well as the ability to view it on demand for six months.
