IT’S BACK! – The Big Rail Diversity Challenge, now in its fourth year, is taking place on Thursday 27th June 2019 at Newark Showground, Lincoln Road, Coddington, Newark NG24 2NY

Promoting the Women in Rail message: Gender Diversity: Better for People, Better for Business, Better for Rail

The Big Rail Diversity Challenge is a cross between “It’s a Knockout” and “Krypton Factor”; an event created to provide participants with the opportunity to network, team build and fundraise through a series of challenges to showcase men and women performing in roles which are perceived as “non-traditional”. The event is also used to deliver the Women in Rail undertaking by showing that gender diverse teams raise awareness for women working across the rail industry and the business benefit attained when companies improve gender balance.

This action packed Fun Day will see you working together in mixed gender teams to prove the Women in Rail undertaking that that gender-balanced teams really do work better together.
