UK: Search Begins for Most Inspirational Women in Rail

Women in Rail has launched the search for the most inspirational women in rail, looking to create a shortlist of 20 women who have made an outstanding contribution to the UK rail industry.

Who will make it on to the shortlist?

The women who will make it to the shortlist will be those who have influenced others over the course of their careers. By focusing on their positive impact rather than their job title or work history, the honour will be for their infectious energy and attitude.

Women in Rail are looking for nominations. They could be an inspirational colleague, a role model or an individual who has demonstrated drive and determination in difficult conditions. Anyone can nominate peers, colleagues or managers. Nominations are open from 4 February to 25 March 2016.

Adeline Ginn, founder of Women in Rail, said:

“During a time that rail is experiencing strong growth, it is fundamental that we change perceptions of the industry. Key to this is highlighting the fantastic female role models that the industry offers, and recognising the impact that they have on our day-to-day lives.”


The nominees will be judged by Women in Rail committee. The panel includes Anna Walker, previously at the Office of Rail and Road, and Loraine Martins of Network Rail.
