Our Wellington rail team is attracting more women to the industry with its diverse career pathways and inclusive culture.
Transdev Wellington General Manager of People and Culture, Emma MacRae, says the number of women working at Transdev Wellington is currently rising by 1% per year, and this number is expected to grow.
“In 2020, we saw the number of women locomotive engineers rise to an all-time high of 11%, up from 7.8% in 2019, and across roles women team leaders increased from 33% to 38%.”
Metlink Operations Manager, Melissa Anderson says these results are well above the wider Australasian rail industry rate which sits at 27% women, according to the latest Australasian Railway Association (ARA) Gender Diversity Report 2019.
All of our teams strive to reflect the diversity of the communities that we serve, and we are pleased to play a part in changing the face of public transport.
