Nominations for the Women in Rail Awards 2022 are now open


Women in Rail has announced that nominations can now be made for its 2022 awards, which is set to take place at the Roundhouse in Camden on 19 May 2022.

The awards showcase and reward individuals and businesses that have made a significant contribution to improving gender balance, equality, diversity and inclusion in UK rail.

An important event in the sector’s calendar, it is attended by a cross section of the industry, including key stakeholders and decision makers, infrastructure providers, operators, manufacturers, rolling stock companies, technical consultancy companies and suppliers, to name only a few.

Christine Fernandes, chair of Women in Rail and business development for CAF said: “The Women in Rail Awards has become a staple in the rail events calendar since launching in 2018. It is a fantastic opportunity to hear, share and recognise the inspirational men, women and organisations of our professional community who go above and beyond to improve gender balance, diversity, equality and inclusion across the sector.

“I am delighted that the Awards will be returning to the Roundhouse – a stunning venue with a rich rail history – here we will celebrate and share in the successes of our industry, and acknowledge the actions being taken to move UK Rail forward into a bright – and more diverse – future for generations to come.”

Judges will focus primarily on the 700-word nomination form, with any additional supporting information (limited to 2 pages of A4) only being taken into consideration during the process of deciding a winner amongst the shortlisted nominees.

Nominations will close on Friday 28 January 2022.
