[VIDEO] Women on the Move: Transforming Transport in Asia—GIZ
Transport is largely still seen as a field for men, with only ~20% of the workforce being women despite knowledge that women make up half of the population and have different travel patterns and considerations. This underrepresentation inevitably leads to gaps in how mobility services are delivered – an issue we would like to tackle by ensuring that gender is mainstreamed in our work.
In this Knowledge Lab, we will discuss the importance of gender assessments and of having a network that connects women, helps them grow, and empowers their participation in discourses on transport in Asia.
