How can we make transport work better for women and girls?

UTG is sponsoring an important series of free webinars under the banner ‘Gender on the Agenda’.

Delivered by Landor LINKS, the series will explore the benefits and methods of creating places and mobility that work for women and girls. It will also look at how women’s opportunities within the transport professions can be enhanced and how decision-making can become more representative.

Webinars held so far are listed below, together with YouTube links to watch the recordings:

  • 'Why transport is not gender neutral' took place on 8th September 2021 and looked at how we can better understand the travel patterns and needs of women and girls and what we can do to ensure places and mobility services better meet these needs.
  • 'How technology and innovation can support inclusive mobility' took place on 8th October 2021 and highlighted positive examples of how women as transport users can benefit from the innovations that are transforming the transport sector. It also looked at innovative approaches to support women's professional opportunities in the transport sector.
  • 'Making streets and public space work for everyone' took place on 23rd November 2021 and looked at how the design of streets and public space affects women's movements and access to opportunity. It considered how we can ensure 'living local' works for women and girls and looked at specific projects including Living Streets' work to enable teenage girls to understand and reclaim walking routes and public spaces. The session also explored the award-winning Gender Equality Toolkit in Transport.

The Gender on the Agenda series will return in the New Year.
