Our commitment

Here at Transport, we are deeply committed to creating an inclusive and diverse workplace where people feel they belong and can reach their full potential. This commitment is demonstrated through the cluster-wide strategy for inclusion and diversity. Our people are at the heart of everything we do and are what make us truly unique.


We understand the importance and value of gender representation, in terms of improved productivity and performance for our organisation. It also means we are able to provide a better experience of public transport and infrastructure for all people. Now more than ever, we need people of all genders shaping the future of transport and Transport cannot reach our full potential unless it can benefit from the talents of all.

Whilst we are making significant achievements in top levels of leadership in Transport, significantly with 67 per cent of the leadership team now being women which is a first in Transport’s history, we still have a long way to go in the levels below. In the NSW Public Sector we have a women in leadership target of 50% by 2025, which is part of the Premier’s Priority for Driving Public Sector Diversity. Transport’s target as part of this contribution is 40% based on analysis and forecasting. Women continue to be underrepresented across the organisation as a whole, particularly in our Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) and Construction areas of the cluster. Whilst we have made good progress in some areas, there is much more we need to do to better reflect the communities that we serve and unleash our full potential to drive innovation and creativity.

Initiatives to accelerate progress

  • Attract diverse talented women to Transport
  • Develop and progress women by providing development opportunities, and a consistent talent and succession process
  • Creating an inclusive experience for all people
  • Initiatives to help drive change in the community including the Safety After Dark Innovation Challenge aimed to improve the safety for women in NSW
  • Organisational response to Domestic Family Violence and Abuse to support our people impacted including training for People Partners, Mental Health First Aiders and people leaders
  • Yearly events such as the cluster International Women’s Day event, International Women in Engineering Day, Inspiring Women in Conversation fortnightly virtual interview series with women leaders across the cluster and the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women
