Gender Dimensions of the Transport Workforce

“In 2018, females represented less than 20% of the global transport workforce.”

The International Transport Forum published this discussion paper to draw attention to the current gender gaps within the transport workforce and demonstrate the benefits of increased female participation in the transport sector. It focusses on the different barriers women face when trying to enter the transport workforce, like the working conditions and gender stereotyping and analyzes the correlation between female participation in the transport labor force and socio-economic circumstances.
