Brussels, 19 March 2019

 

As a member of the Platform for Change, FEPORT participated to the meeting of Women in Transport that took place on the 19th of March. 

Launched on 27 November 2017, this Platform aims to boost women's employment in the transport sector and to encourage equal opportunities for women and men. The Platform allows its members to discuss and exchange about good practices.

During the meeting, some members’ actions such as Ferrovie dello Stato’s in Italy and Aviadoras’ sin Spain were presented. There was also a discussion regarding the possibility to appoint a Platform Ambassador to encourage more action in the transport sector as a hole. 

Gender-based violence and different types of harassment are unfortunately still on the agenda and call for action from all industries of the transport sector.
