The exceptional 100 Years of Women in Transport campaign (YOWIT) has developed a network of over 12,500 people and 270 organisations in its first 14 months. YOWIT was created to engage, motivate and inspire current and future generations, particularly women, with the aim of strengthening diversity amongst the transport industry. It has been internationally recognised by the World Bank and the Inter-American Development Bank and also set a Guinness World Record on National Women in Engineering Day 2015. YOWIT has been incorporated into the DfT’s Transport Infrastructure Skills Strategy as an effective way of increasing diversity within the industry. YOWIT is set to launch an industry wide school toolkit which will provide a single articulation for the industry to inspire future generations to consider a career in transport. YOWIT has delivered a huge number of events in collaboration with its partners and sponsors and has been revolutionary in its approach, achieving an unprecedented amount in its first 14 months.
