Celebrating the work of female leaders in the industry
Speaking of the nomination in the Infrastructure Award category, Susie Dunham said:
"I feel honoured to be nominated for this award alongside some truly inspiring leaders in the industry.
"Women currently make up 47% of the UK workforce but remain underrepresented in transport, accounting for just 20% of the sector.
"It is therefore vital, in order to create equitable towns and cities, that we continue to celebrate the work of female leaders in the industry, and make space for more women and seldom heard voices at the table."
An integral part of the team
Xavier Brice, CEO at Sustrans also said:
"We’re delighted to hear the news that Susie has been nominated for this award.
"Susie is passionate about the role that walking and cycling can play in making places healthier and people happier, and is an integral part of the team here at Sustrans."
