PIARC Webinar: The impact of COVID-19 on women in transport

As economies close in response to COVID-19, women face significant risks to their health and livelihoods. In the transport sector, where women are already significantly under-represented, they face precarious and vulnerable employment situations that any COVID-19-related economic crisis will accentuate, in a differentiated way to that facing men in the sector.

Any post-COVID-19 response must recognise these gender differences, involve both men and women in its development and be equitable and inclusive in its impact. This free webinar draws on current experiences from experts around the world working in this field and will draw together thoughts on key issues and useful initiatives in place or planned to address them.

  • Speakers include: Christos Xenophontos and Anna Wildt-Persson (PIARC Technical Committee 1.1 on the Performance of Transport Administrations), Gina Porter (University of Durham), Fatima Adamu (University of Sokoto), Claire Clarke (International Transport Federation), Naomi Mwaura (Flone Initiative).
  • This webinar is organised jointly with the UK Department for International Development (DFID).
