Traditionally, the bus and coach industry has been male dominated, with only about 10% of industry professionals being female. However, a new game-changing initiative aims to change this. We are thrilled to announce our support for the ground-breaking Women in Bus and Coach initiative. Led by industry experts committed to collaboration, the initiative is taking crucial steps to create a more inclusive and diverse industry career for women of all ages, backgrounds, and ethnicities.

The All-Party Parliamentary Group for the Road Passenger Transport Industry recently hosted the parliamentary launch of Women in Bus and Coach at the House of Commons. The launch of this national network aimed at empowering women in our industry brought together prominent figures from the bus and coach sector, along with Members of Parliament and supporters of the initiative, to champion this vital initiative and pave the way for a more inclusive and equitable future. The unveiling of a Women in Bus and Coach-branded bus at the event was a further symbol of dedication to visibility and representation.

Dawsongroup bus and coach is proud to stand alongside Women in Bus and Coach in its mission to create a more inclusive and representative industry. We believe that working together can achieve a professional environment and culture that celebrates diversity, making the bus and coach sector accessible to individuals from all backgrounds.

The Managing Director for Dawsongroup bus and coach, Paul Sainthouse, said, “Dawsongroup recognises both the moral and commercial advantages of having diversity of participant and of thought, within every aspect of the organisation. Women in Bus and Coach will be a key partner of our EDI Strategic Plan, under which we will continue to ensure our organisation and its supply chain delivers on our commitment to gender equality, fairness and opportunity for all and the creation of a business environment that allows people from every part of our society to achieve their true potential.”

Together, we can create a more inclusive industry that reflects the diversity of our communities.
