We are headline sponsoring the first-ever Trailblazers North Networking Reception! National Railway Museum will host the event in York on 6th October.
The Railway Industry Association (RIA), Young Rail Professionals (YRP) and Women in Rail (WR) are partnering to bring together young and experienced professionals from across the industry. It will provide opportunities for attendees to learn from each other, make new connections, and celebrate a vibrant and diverse rail workforce.
Paul Robinson, Gleeds’ UK Rail Lead, will make a speech offering thoughts and encouragement to the next generation of rail.
“I’ve worked in the rail sector for years,” said Paul. “To have the opportunity to meet and engage with next generation of rail is a real privilege, investing and supporting a young and diverse workforce is a critical contributor to solving the rail delivery challenge in a progressive and innovative way.”
Kate Jennings, Policy Director for RIA said, “We are delighted and excited to run another Trailblazers event and proud to welcome RIA Member, Gleeds as our Headline Sponsor. Our Trailblazers initiative, celebrating a vibrant and diverse railway industry, is a great networking opportunity for people at all stages in their career and we hope it supports the next generation of industry professionals. It also forms part of our work following the Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Charter launched last year, and it’s great to work with so many colleagues from across the industry supporting on this.”
