Clare Waller, head of timetable development within Arriva’s UK Trains Bid Team, has been named within the UK rail industry’s top 20 inspirational women.Organised by Women in Rail, the first ever survey of its kind was launched in February to celebrate women in the UK’s railway sector who have influenced others over the course of their career. Over 200 nominations were received from across the rail industry with the top 20 chosen by the Women in Rail’s Steering Committee.
Clare Waller said: “I’m totally surprised to have been recognised in the top 20 and feel very proud that I may have helped inspire even a small number of people. I’m touched by the messages of support and congratulations I’ve received.”
Adeline Ginn, founder of Women in Rail said, “We had a fantastic response to the survey. The UK railway industry employs many amazing women who need to be recognised for their outstanding contribution to our sector and the impact they have on our day-to-day lives. Narrowing the list to 20 was extremely challenging and difficult but it was crucial for us to showcase the 20 women from across the industry who have made a big difference to their managers, peers, colleagues and customers.”Women in Rail will soon release a series of interviews with the 20 winners and the reasons they were nominated.
