We empower Women in Transport

In May 2018 the Transformative Urban Mobility Initiative (TUMI) launched Women Mobilize Women as the first conference to empower women in transport, with 200 female as well as male transport experts gathering in Leipzig, Germany. Today, Women Mobilize Women is a network of female change makers from all over the world, seeking to actively transform the mobility sector to become more diverse. In addition, Women Mobilize Women aims to raise awareness to the topic of gender and transport amongst planners and decision-makers in the transport sector.

Urban Leaders – Global Program 2021: empowering women through knowledge and mentoring

The Urban Leaders – Global Program 2021: empowering women through knowledge and mentoring is a Leadership Program co-created by Mujeres en Movimiento – Women in Motion (WIM) and WomenMobilizeWomen (WMW). Ensuring women’s participation in the urban workforce, promoting female role models and empowering each other is at the core of the Program. In a combination of knowledge sessions and interactive mentoring this program aims to equip women with the tools, the network and the confidence to pursue their individual path in the transport sector for the long run.

The program was successfully kicked off on 4 October 2021 with 60 remarkable urban leaders participating.

Happy International Women’s Day 2021!

Be inspired by female experts in transport! We as Women Mobilize Women highlight the potential of sustainable mobility solutions on the ground – by women, for the entire society.

TUMI and Women Mobilize Women are delighted to publish the third annual edition of Remarkable Women in Transport! We are especially grateful to the Remarkable Women in our network and the TUMI Partners for supporting us in identifying women who’ve made extraordinary contributions to transport.
Historically, urban and transport planners have failed to take gender aspects into consideration. A diverse workforce including various perspectives is essential to develop and implement gender-responsive mobility systems. While this publication is by no means all-encompassing of the thousands of women in transport who make great contributions everyday, we hope that these selected few inspire you in 2021.

Just browse and get inspired!
