Women in Rail launched its North West Regional Group with ‘Ginspirational’ at the Malmaison Hotel, Manchester on Tuesday July 25th.


The event, which was sponsored by Direct Rail Services, was attended by over 30 people. They heard from three inspirational speakers: Claire Douglas, Driver, Direct Rail Services, Claire Beranek, Route Asset Manager (Signalling), Network Rail and Jane Simpson, Head of Asset Creation, Non Infrastructure Severn Trent Water. Liam Sumpter, Regional Director from Northern closed the event highlighting the importance of diversity in the rail industry.


The event was followed by a social gin tasting session which was very much enjoyed by all!
