Women in Rail

On behalf of the Railway Association of Canada (RAC), we would like to invite you to attend the upcoming, inaugural Canadian Women in Rail event. The intent of this event is to showcase the wonderful job women in business are doing each and every day; whether you are operating in a yard, running a locomotive, or heading the Board of Directors at one of Canada’s railways, women are excelling in the workforce. The event will be two hours a day, over a two day period.

If you have any questions, please direct to Janet Greene at (613) 564-8109 or jgreene@railcan.ca
