Kelly Rail was proud to enter a team of 10 into this year’s Big Rail Diversity Challenge supporting the Women in Rail charity. The Big Rail Diversity Challenge delivers the Women in Rail undertaking by showing that gender diverse teams raise awareness for women working across the rail industry and the business benefits attained when companies improve gender balance.
Women in rail was created to improve diversity in the UK rail industry through providing network opportunities and support for all women within the sector, to encourage companies and stakeholders to adapt diversity as a business strategy and devising initiatives aimed at positioning rail as an attractive career choice for young people.
