Women in Rail – End of Year Newsletter 2019

Dear colleagues,

2019 has again been a fantastic year for Women in Rail, thanks to the hard work, passion and commitment of the amazing Women in Rail team – Regional Leaders and their Steering Committee – and of all the volunteers who support us.

Speaking to people in the industry, I became aware that many do not know that the Women in Rail team is made up entirely of volunteers. It is! And for the last 7 years, Women in Rail has grown from strength to strength thanks to the passion, dedication, altruism and goodwill of the men and women who run it alongside their day job. This, once again, is a testament to how much kindness there is in our industry.

As was to be expected, we have now reached a turning point where we need your help. With 4,000 members and 8 regional groups, we need funding if Women in Rail is to continue its work. This year, we have therefore launched Corporate Membership Packages (the details of which are on page 34). Please take time to look at them and see if you may be able to help. You can also support us by organising fundraising events for Women in Rail. Your donations will enable us to start employing professional staff and make Women in Rail a sustainable, expandable and scalable initiative for our industry.

I hope, like me, you will enjoy reading about the amazing work carried out by the Women in Rail team across the country and beyond in 2019 and I very much look forward to seeing you at one of our events in 2020.

Wishing you a wonderful and relaxing holiday and a very happy and prosperous New Year!
