A joint event between Women in Rail, London Committee and Network Rail’s Anglia route which is part of the Eastern region. We want to bring colleagues together from across the rail industry to celebrate International Women’s Day and the theme is ‘break the bias’.

This will be an informative event with lots of opportunity for interaction. Dyan Crowther, CEO High Speed 1 is our keynote speaker. We will then have a panel event where the theme ‘break the bias’ will be discussed and there will be an opportunity for Q&A.

Following the break, there will be an interactive session on imposter syndrome again followed by the opportunity for Q&A.
