About the event

To celebrate during the week of International Women’s Day, Women in Rail Yorkshire will be hosting an interactive event, sponsored by Linbrooke.

We welcome speakers from across the industry on the IWD theme #BreakTheBias with an opportunity for Q&A following a panel discussion.

The Clear Company will then run a ‘Break the Bias at Work’ skills workshop, providing practical tips to positively challenge bias.

Finally, we want to hear from you! What would you like to see from Women in Rail Yorkshire in 2022?
