Eurovia UK | Celebrating International Women’s Day with new Women in Transport partnership
Eurovia UK is celebrating International Women’s Day by joining forces with Women in Transport to provide greater networking and development opportunities for women in our business.
The new partnership further demonstrates Eurovia UK’s commitment to improving and encouraging diversity in our own businesses, as well as across the whole of the transport sector. It will provide people from across our businesses with an opportunity to be part of a professional network that is championing the role of women and the value of a diverse workforce – just one of many measures we are investing in to strengthen our position on diversity and inclusion.
By partnering with Women in Transport we will support the empowerment of women to maximise their potential, while members benefit from exclusive access to an extensive events programme including behind the scenes tours, professional development workshops, networking opportunities and access to the All Party Parliamentary Group for women in transport.
Women in Transport also runs a mentoring programme which offers people the chance to learn and receive guidance from experienced figures in the transport sector, as well as providing opportunities for managers to share their time and expertise with others.
This partnership will see 30 free membership places offered to women, and men, across our business.
Sonya Veerasamy, Interim Chief Executive of Women in Transport said: “Women in Transport is delighted to welcome Eurovia UK as our newest corporate partner. Our organisations are both passionate and committed to advancing the careers of women in transport and showcasing the diversity of opportunity in our sector. We look forward to meeting our new members from Eurovia UK and helping them build their professional network, skills and visibility through our event and mentoring programmes.”
Scott Wardrop, Chief Executive of Eurovia UK, said: “It is vital that more people are given opportunities, so I am delighted that Eurovia UK has partnered with Women in Transport increase the representation of women across the sector.”
