Chalkwell’s Roland Eglinton joins Women in Transport
Sittingbourne-based Chalkwell Coach Hire’s MD, Roland Eglinton, has joined the not-for-profit organisation Women in Transport.
Women in Transport aims to empower women to maximise their potential. The organisation addresses the disparity of women’s representation in the transport industry’s workforce. Its website cites the figures of women making up 47% of the workforce, while only 20% of roles in the transport sector are held by females. Membership provides access to a varied events programme including unique experiences, professional development and networking and annual mentoring.
Roland said: “As a father of two girls I want them to have every equal opportunity in life. By committing to membership we, as a company, can focus on the employment, career advancement and retention of women within the transport industry.”
