Network Rail sets ’20 by 20′ target to increase take-up of female employees

Published on : Tuesday, March 7, 2017

4To coincide with National Apprenticeship Week (6-10 March) and International Women’s Day (8 March), Network Rail is working directly with schools as part of a new engagement programme to encourage more young people – women in particular – to consider science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) subjects, and inspire them to find out about careers in the rail industry.

 

The organisation has also set itself a new target to increase its take-up of female employees across the business to 20 per cent by 2020. Currently, 16 per cent of Network Rail’s 37,000 strong workforce is female.

 

As one of Britain’s biggest employers, Network Rail recognises it has a role to play in inspiring future generations’ interest in engineering careers. The pipeline of female talent entering the sector is low – the result of 50,000 girls every year turning away from a STEM education, according to WISE.
