At the 2015 and 2016 Summit sessions on “Women in Transport” the ITF stakeholders - ministers, business leaders and civil society - insisted that a strong transport system depends on a vibrant, innovative and diverse workforce that includes both women and men. Achieving this implies encouraging female entrepreneurship, promoting equal opportunity in educational programmes, improving part-time working conditions, implementing high-quality family friendly policies, and being open to new ideas.
This year the debate on women in transport will focus on how better governance can help attract women to the transport sector.
This networking breakfast session, to encourage lively exchange and debate, will last 1h 30 minutes and it will host approximately 100 participants sitting at round tables (8-10 participants per table). The session debate will be led by a moderator, and each table will be hosted by one speaker or discussion leader.
