The Challenge - Why do we need to act now? 

Transport, a vital industry employing over 1.5 million people and contributing £214 billion to the UK economy in 2020, faces a pressing challenge of attracting, recruiting and retaining diverse talent. With only 26% of the workforce being females, the sector is heavily male-dominated. In the sub-sectors, only 16% of the rail workforce is female and a mere 6% in aviation. In the bicycle sector, only 8% of cycle mechanics are women. The exact representation of women in maritime and road transport remains unknown, further underscoring the need for comprehensive data to address the gender imbalance across the industry.
