About the Event
An amazing start to KTN's first ever Transport Equality, Diversity and Inclusion event! A wide range of attendees from across transport in aviation, rail, maritime and beyond came together for a series of discussions and workshops all looking at ED&I in transport.
Alongside the discussion, a few videos have been submitted to showcase examples of ED&I in aerospace, rail and maritime:
- Within a short video contributed by Flight Crowd our Co-Founder Mariya Tarabanovska, outlined how Flight Crowd strive to build a community that is inclusive to all
- Key industry stakeholder and innovative train operating company Avanti outlined their commitment to inclusion and accessibility in innovation
- Chrissie Clarke - Programme Manager (Diversity and Skills) at Women in Maritime looked at Diversity in Maritime
Some of the questions that were raised during the session included:
- What kinds of things does equality, diversity and inclusion (ED&I) cover? What do we mean by ED&I?
- Why does ED&I matter in transport?
- Where are we now in terms of ED&I in our sectors and in our organisations? Does a certain sector (for example, maritime) have further to go? What does your organisation do around ED&I in transport?
