The Women in Rail (WR) annual conference took place on Friday 1st December 2017 at the offices of Ashurst LLP, Broadwalk House, 5 Appold Street, London EC2A 2HA.

The theme of the conference was “Leading  by Example” and we heard presentations from, amongst others, Crowley Woodford (Partner, Ashurst LLP), Michelle Russell (Senior Analyst, NSAR), Faye Jaques (Fundraising Manager, Railway Benefit Fund), Natasha Zulkifli (Executive Vice President, Prasarana Malaysia Berhad and Founder Director of the Women in Rail Malaysia Group), Rajinder Pryor (Engagement Lead for the Digital Railway Programme, Network Rail), Mark Carne (Chief Executive Officer, Network Rail), Laurent Troger (President of Bombardier Transportation).

It was a fantastic event, attended by over 130 men and women from the UK railway industry and the feedback has been amazing.

A very big think you to our speakers and to Ashurst for hosting the conference.
