Equality and diversity are core values of the European Union. We are proud to announce the launch of the European Commission’s Ambassadors for Diversity in Transport Network. The network seeks to promote diversity, equality and inclusion within the EU transport sector. It will raise awareness and share information on and develop and implement initiatives to promote diversity in the EU transport sector, both from the perspective of transport workers and transport users.
Transport is one the EU's key sectors, keeping the economy moving and enabling the movement of people, which is vital for social inclusion and well-being. The sector must become attractive to a more diverse workforce to remain resilient and competitive in view of the green and digital transitions and to face challenges such as an ageing workforce or pandemics.
Our initiative also perfectly chimes in with the European Parliament’s third European Gender Equality Week, to discuss issues related to Gender Equality in different policy fields.
