Women in Rail (WR) and The Railway Industry Association (RIA) have launched a Charter to champion equality, diversity and inclusion in the UK railway industry. The joint ‘Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Charter’ is a commitment to work together to build a more balanced higher-performing sector and has been backed by over 140 organizations.

The Charter involves several key commitments, including to:

  • Appoint a member of the senior leadership team as an ‘EDI Champion’;
  • Agree on an action plan, monitor and report on progress made;
  • Provide opportunities for training and education of employees, support the progression of diverse individuals into senior roles to improve diverse representation at senior and executive level of the UK railway industry;
  • Create a culture that fosters inclusion and provide a safe space for all employees to talk openly, including at industry events and in meetings; and
  • Make recruitment and progression processes accessible and attractive to all to attract retain and develop people of all backgrounds, ages, genders and identities.

The Charter is open to all companies, clients and organizations working in the UK railway industry who wish to play a role in promoting positive change in the rail industry. It seeks to recognize and build upon the progress which has already taken place, providing the basis to encourage further collaboration and action across the sector.
