Feedback received from the Women in Rail launch event in April 2013 indicated that Women in Rail members wanted to explore ways to overcome lack of self-confidence which they felt would often prevent them from pushing themselves further in their career.
To that end, on 9th October 2013, Women in Rail hosted its first regional workshop at the National Railways Museum in York: “Furthering the success of women in the rail industry: building your self-confidence”.
This interactive session addressed why women may lack self-belief and what they can do to build their confidence.
Tinu Cornish, Chartered and Registered Occupational Psychologist, Malcolm Brown, Chief Executive Officer at Angel Trains and Karen Boswell, Managing Director at East Coast Main Line were guest speakers and shared their thoughts and experiences on this important issue.
The event was attended by about 90 women from the sector and has now become one of Women in Rail’s regular workshops.
