Support shown for diversity in the rail sector

In support for greater gender diversity, in the rail industry, VolkerRail has entered two teams into the Big Rail Diversity Challenge.


The challenge, which is a cross between it’s a Knockout and the Krypton Factor, will see each team made up of 50 percent female and 50 percent male members, compete head to head in numerous mental and physical challenges; lasting 15 minutes, throughout the day.

VolkerRail’s major projects director, Stuart Birch, said: “We understand that a diverse workforce creates a better working environment, with wider scope for innovation, development and knowledge sharing. This is a great idea and one we are very much in support of. Good luck to everyone taking part.”
