How to attract women to the transport sector?


Brussels, Belgium

This full day event will gather 250 representatives from companies and employers’ organisations, transport workers and workers’ organisations, researchers and academics, public authorities and non-governmental organisations for brainstorming sessions in English.

The morning discussions will focus on work-life balance and possible -economically viable- solutions to improve transport workers’ choice of shifts, while the afternoon’s discussions will aim at gathering positive insights on what are the attractors of the transport sector for women, to be used to fight negative stereotypes.

The outcome of two studies will also be discussed. The first one, "Making the EU transport attractive to future generations" can already be consulted online. Based on case studies, the second one looks at measures that companies can put in place to increase their gender balance. It will be released at the occasion of the conference.
