On the 6th November 2020, The Railway Industry Association (RIA) and Women in Rail (WR) launched a new Charter to champion Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) in the UK railway industry. This EDI Charter reflects the commitment of the UK railway sector and more specifically, RIA and WR, along with HICSE to champion Equality, Diversity and Inclusion in the rail industry and to work together to build a more balanced, fair and high performing sector.
HICSE supports social mobility and we are committed to creating equal opportunities for everyone within the business, and we recognise the role our industry plays in creating opportunities and unlocking talent. This will overall help to develop the next generation of leaders in rail, make our sector more attractive, foster innovation and play a crucial role in the creation of a best in class railway sector in the UK.
Tim Gray, Managing Director, commented “We are proud to sign the EDI Charter which builds on our current initiatives and reflects our plans to create a more equal, diverse and inclusive workforce following the Hitachi way of harmony, sincerity and pioneering spirit.
