VTA to pay tribute to women in transport

Today’s International Women’s Day has been further enhanced with the Victorian Transport Association’s (VTA) announcement of its Annual Women’s Lunch to take place on 7 April at the historic Ascot House in the inner Melbourne suburb of Ascot Vale.

“As they do in so many walks of life, women make a massive contribution to the Australian transport industry. On behalf of the Victorian Transport Association I would like to formally recognise and thank the thousands of women across our sector for their hard work and dedication,” said VTA CEO, Peter Anderson.

“It’s no secret there is a heavy skew towards men when it comes to representation and participation in our industry, and we still need to do more to attract and retain women to the profession.

“So as well as celebrating the valuable role of women in transport, I would encourage every VTA member to today ask how they can improve female representation in their workplace, and how workplace culture can develop, evolve and improve to have better appeal among women. “

According to the VTA, the event will feature addresses from a range of successful women, including Viva Energy Australia General Manager, Human Resources Jodie Haydon, Deakin University Centre for Supply Chain & Logistics Director, Dr Hermione Parsons, and other notable speakers being confirmed.
