Women in Rail Awards nominations now open

Nominations are now open for the Women in Rail Awards 2022.

The event is set to take place on Thursday 19 May at the Roundhouse in Camden.

The aim of the Women in Rail Awards is to showcase and reward individuals, and all types of businesses, which have made an important contribution to improving gender balance, equality, diversity and inclusion in UK rail.

A major event in the industry calendar, awards attendees include key stakeholders and decision makers, infrastructure providers, operators, manufacturers, rolling stock companies, technical consultancy companies and suppliers.

Christine Fernandes, chair of Women in Rail and business development for CAF, said: “The Women in Rail Awards has become a staple in the Rail events calendar since launching in 2018. It is a fantastic opportunity to hear, share and recognise the inspirational men, women and organisations of our professional community who go above and beyond to improve gender balance, diversity, equality and inclusion across the sector.

“I am delighted that the Awards will be returning to the Roundhouse – a stunning venue with a rich rail history – here we will celebrate and share in the successes of our industry, and acknowledge the actions being taken to move UK Rail forward into a bright – and more diverse – future for generations to come.”

The key focus for the judges will be a 700-word nomination form. Supporting information (limited to 2 pages of A4) is only taken into consideration during the process of deciding a winner amongst the shortlisted nominees.

The closing date for nominations is Friday 28 January 2022.
