Covid hits transport women conference

The pandemic has forced the postponement of the Daimler-sponsored Transport Women Australia Driving the Difference conference

Transport Women Australia Limited (TWAL) has announced that due to continuing border closures, lockdowns and other restrictions, it has been forced to postpone its Driving the Difference conference, which was due to be held in late October.

The new dates are June 3 to 5, 2022.

The Daimler-backed Driving the Difference initiative enables Transport Women Australia Limited to offer scholarships to six women this year.

First introduced in 2019, the scholarship program was developed by Transport Women Australia Limited and Daimler for women in the transport and logistics industry and those wishing to join.

The scholarships enable women within the industry to undertake a course that will advance their careers or expand their knowledge to enhance their current position or give other women the chance to become part of the industry.

“We are very disappointed to make this decision, however we want to hold a face-to-face event,” TWAL chair Jacquelene Brotherton says.

“We would like to thank our sponsors and speakers for their understanding during this challenging time.

“We would also like to thank our registered attendees for hanging in there while we work though this period.”

Brotherton says the TWAL is honoured to be able to join once again with Daimler Truck and Bus Australia Pacific to present the ‘Driving the Difference’ scholarships, to enhance participation of women in the transport and logistics industry.

Daimler Truck and Bus Australia Pacific president and CEO, Daniel Whitehead, says the company is pleased to continue its support of the program.

“The TWAL Driving the Difference scholarship program is a fantastic initiative that Daimler Truck and Bus is proud to back,” Whitehead says.

“Daimler is firmly committed to supporting gender diversity and equitable practices in the trucking and transport industry,” he adds.

DTB was the first commercial vehicle manufacturer to be accredited with the Workplace Gender Equality Agency (WGEA) Employer of Choice for Gender Equality (ECOGE) in Australia.

The EOCGE classification is designed to encourage, recognise and promote an active commitment to achieving gender equality in Australian workplaces and is a voluntary leading practice recognition program that is separate to the Equal Opportunity Act.

    First off I would like to say awesome blog! I had a quick question which
    I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I was curious to know how you center
    yourself and clear your thoughts before writing. I’ve had trouble clearing
    my thoughts in getting my ideas out there. I truly do take
    pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be wasted just trying to
    figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or tips? Cheers!
