Tomorrow’s eagerly-anticipated All-Party Parliamentary Group’s Women in Transport Summer Reception will be attended by members of the TXM Recruit team.
Louise Gill and Feli Shallow work as part of TXM Recruit’s Engineering Accounts Management and will represent the company at the event, which has been specially designed to celebrate women in the sector while considering how the next generation can be inspired during the ‘Year of Engineering’.
Nusrat Ghani MP, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State at the Department of Transport, will be the keynote speaker.
The Chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Women in Transport, Ruth Cadbury MP, will host the reception which is being sponsored by TXM Recruit.
Louise has spoken of her delight at TXM Recruit’s partnership with the All-Party Parliamentary Group and is excited at the prospect of being involved.
Louise said: “It is fantastic for us to be sponsoring the Women in Transport Summer Reception.
“The event is a culmination of all our activity so far this year around increasing diversity and inclusion within the Transport industry - and we are proud to be championing this alongside co-sponsors Hitachi Rail Europe and Engie.
“Now more than ever, it’s important that we don’t just talk about how to increase diversity in our sector and instead, we take action to inspire and facilitate different groups joining the industry.
“The event, whilst celebrating women in the sector, demonstrates the commitment of so many businesses and individuals to building a truly diverse industry sector.
“I am really looking forward to hearing the speakers and discussing ideas of how we can drive change in the industry during the remainder of 2018 and beyond.”
Feli added: “Although it is hugely important that we continue to celebrate women currently working in the transport and engineering industry, it is equally important to continue to inspire the next generation.
“There is so much positive movement and activity around making the engineering and transportation industries as diverse and inclusive as possible. It, as a result, becomes much more attractive for the next generation.
“As I am a committee member within the team for Women in Transport, I will of course be supporting all of the attendees and look very much forward to discussing the future."
