Trailblazers - Networking reception
26 August 2021
KIA Oval, London
The Railway Industry Association (RIA), Young Rail Professionals (YRP) and Women in Rail (WR) are partnering to bring you the next Trailblazers Networking Reception. The Reception will be part of our relaunching of in-person events, and will take place on 26 August 2021 at the KIA Oval in London, from 5:30 - 7:30pm. This initiative and event support the vision of the EDI Charter launched last November by RIA and WR and the work currently undertaken by the EDI Charter Working Group.
Our Trailblazers initiative brings together young and experienced professionals from across the industry, to enable them to learn from each other, make new connections, and celebrate a vibrant and diverse rail workforce. We encourage attendees to bring a 'plus one' - if you are a senior professional we encourage you to bring a junior colleague or mentee; and if you are a more junior professional we encourage you to bring a senior colleague (although this is not compulsory).
Please do come and join us for a drink and nibbles at what will be a unique and exciting networking event in a fantastic location!
With thanks for our Headline Sponsor, SSE Contracting for sponsoring this event.
