Tell us about your organisation

Transport for Wales (TfW) exists to drive forward the Welsh Government’s vision of a high-quality, safe, integrated, affordable and accessible transport network that the people of Wales are proud of.

Our work focuses on improving connectivity – by planning, commissioning and managing efficient transport networks and by drawing on the best skills from across industry, government and society. Together, we’re creating a transport network fit for the future, that contributes to the long-term sustainability of Wales and of those communities connected to us, achieving the seven well-being goals of the Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015.

Why are you supporting the awards?

The Womenspire awards are a great chance to recognise women’s achievements and contributions in Wales. We’re proud to support the awards and help to continue to highlight the work Chwarae Teg and organisations across Wales are doing to create an environment for everyone to succeed.

Supporting the awards shows our own commitment to creating that environment at TfW and helps to inspire and encourage our own people.

Why does gender equality matter to you?

At Transport for Wales we value diversity. It makes us stronger, helps us understand our customers better, make better decisions and be more innovative.
Everyone’s different and has their own perspective so we’re building a diverse team that mirrors the communities we serve. Through this we’re determined to be one of Wales’ leading inclusive employers.

Achieving gender equality across our organisation is an important aspect in creating a positive working environment for everyone, as well as leading to better delivery for our customers

Why do you support the work of Chwarae Teg?

Chwarae Teg is a leading gender equality charity, and they play an important part to help women in Wales develop their skills and build their careers. Working with them will help to ensure that every one of us has the opportunity to reach our full potential.

Our partnership with Chwarae Teg will provide us with access to a whole host of support and resources as we work towards achieving equality across our organisation.
