Founded in 1997, the League of Railway Women (LRW) is committed to improving the railroad industry by connecting and cultivating women in rail. Our mission is to advance the representation, recognition and opportunities for women, thereby promoting diversity and improving the business results of the railroad industry.
The League of Railway Women kicked off Railroad Day on Capitol Hill 2019 (RR Day) with a networking event featuring Jo Strang, Sr. VP, Safety & Regulatory Policy at American Short Line and Regional Railroad Association. Strang, a previous recipient of the LRW Railway Woman of the Year award, joined the 20+ group of attendees to discuss legislative priorities, best practices on successfully getting your point across, and insider tips about making the best of Railroad Day.
The League of Railway Women (LRW) has opened nominations for its 2019 Railway Woman of the Year award Nomination criteria and the online nomination form are available on the LRW website. Nominations are due by August 16.
