Since 2017, Railway Age has recognized the growth in leadership roles for women in the railway industry with our annual Women in Rail Awards.
Our 2022 Rail Insights: Women in Rail Conference—presented virtually—is your opportunity to participate in a dialogue with the key women who are driving their businesses forward while making a difference and effecting change. Representing the next generation of railroaders, 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.
Five Reasons Why You Should Attend Women in Rail:
- Learn how our featured speakers rose to the top of their field
- Discover recruiting and mentoring best practices appealing to the new generation
- Gain insight into management practices you may not have considered
- See how women are accelerating industry ESG (environmental, social and governance) initiatives
- Learn how women are shaping DEI (diversity, equity and inclusion) initiatives
