Hiring and Retaining a Gender-diverse Workforce. ITF Corporate Partnership Board Workshop

ITF Meeting ITF Meeting

Achieving a more diverse and inclusive transport-sector workforce requires action from both government and private sector. 
With over 2.25 million employees worldwide, the group of companies belonging to the ITF’s Corporate Partnership Board plays an important role in helping to achieve these objectives.
A workshop on ‘Hiring and Retaining a Gender-Diverse Workforce’ was held to explore the challenges to achieving better gender parity in the transport sector and how to make the transport sector more attractive to women.
The Corporate Partnership Board will launch its Workstream on Gender on International Women’s Day, 8th March 2019.

The Workshop is part of the Gender Workstream of the Corporate Partnership Board
