The challenge

Australian transport needs more women.


The facts

  • Australia’s transport sector is the third most male dominated sector by employment behind construction and mining.

  • Currently, women make up around 27.4% of Australia’s transport workforce across rail, road, sea, and air.

  • Only 4.5% of transport CEOs are women - well below the Australian average of 20%. 

  • The gender pay gap in the transport sector is higher than the national average – 15.9% as against 13.9%.
