Women in Rail - Annual report on the development of women's employment in the European railway sector

Monday, 2 February 2015

As an outcome of the joint CER – ETF – EIM project on women in the rail sector (WIR - Women In Rail 1) the European social partners in the railway sector decided to introduce annual reporting on the development of women employment in the sector, based on a limited number of indicators, starting from 2013. The purpose is to follow the development of women employment in the European railway sector, to measure the impact of the Joint Recommendations from 20072 on “a better participation and integration of women in the rail sector” and to motivate railway companies to take action and to develop a corporate policy to attract more women. The first report was presented at the Plenary of European sectoral social dialogue for railway transport on 20th November 2013.
