RIA’s innovation director Milda Manomaityte included in Women in Trade Association’s Powerlist

The Railway Industry Association, (RIA) says it is proud to report that Milda Manomaityte, RIA’s Innovation Director, has been included in the inaugural Women in Trade Associations (WiTA) Powerlist.

The Powerlist champions the achievements of women in trade bodies and aims to encourage the next generation of women in the association sector. The Trade Association Forum (TAF), the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) and the Confederation of British Industry (CBI) all collaborated to create the WiTA Powerlist after receiving over 200 nominations.

Darren Caplan, Chief Executive of RIA, said: “Congratulations to Milda on being included in the Women in Trade Association Powerlist. This is much deserved. Milda has been fantastic in promoting innovation in rail, working with rail suppliers to highlight and help them bring innovations to market; and she has been an inspirational member of the RIA team with her energy and hard work. Well done, Milda.”


Milda said: “It is great to be included in this year’s WiTA Powerlist. I am proud to be on the list, but this is also wider recognition for the work the Railway Industry Association and its members have been doing to promote the railway industry as a great place to work, invest and, crucially, innovate. I am of course very happy to be on the list but hope my inclusion on it will also motivate other women to come forward to seek to be included in future too.”
