Perry: Crossrail the template for rail diversity

Crossrail is the model to follow for recruiting more women and young people into the rail industry, according to Rail Minister Claire Perry.

Speaking at an Industry Day in London on May 18, she warned that sections of the industry could lose half its staff to retirement in the next 15 years. She called that unsustainable, but warned it was also unsustainable to believe that the industry can operate with a workforce that “looks nothing like the public it serves”.
