South – Networking Evening and Hampshire Regional Launch (Basingstoke)

Do you live or work in or around the Hampshire area and know who else does that you can connect with to build and develop your professional network and engage with to make a difference to our industry?

With just 16 % of jobs in rail filled by women, we need to understand how we can encourage others to join our industry and not just attract women to the railway, but also to keep, develop and promote them.  We need more women – not just directors and managers but engineers, signallers, graduates and apprentices too – helping us to build the better, more modern railway that Britain needs.

Which will only be achieved by working together.

So why not join us to celebrate the launch of the WR South Hampshire regional group, meet others who live and work in the area, develop your professional network, meet and engage with key industry leaders?

When: 16.30 – 19.30                                                               

Where: Basingstoke – Network Rail ROC, Gresley Road, RG21 4FS

Date: 4th July 2018
