Thomas Avanzata, UITP Europe Director, just published an opinion letter on equal opportunities in public transport. While being amongst the largest employers at the local level, the public transport sector only employs 17.5% women.
UITP is a strong advocate of equal opportunities for women and men in the urban mobility sector and it recently joined the Women in Transport-EU Platform for Change as founding members. The Platform has developed a Declaration on equal opportunities for women and men in the transport sector and as signatory, UITP encourages all actors in the urban mobility sector to read the Declaration and join their efforts in changing this situation by signing it.
Signing the Declaration is one concrete action and UITP is inviting you to stay the course by sharing best practices and implementing always more effective measures to evolve into a gender-balanced sector.
