The Australian Government and iMOVE Australia commissioned Deakin University’s industry partnership program Wayfinder: Supply Chain Careers for Women, on behalf of the the Infrastructure and Transport Ministers’ Meeting (ITMM), to look at the barriers to women in Australia’s transport industry and to undertake a stocktake of the initiatives currently in place to support women across all sectors of Australia’s transport industry.

In response to the findings Deakin researchers developed a list of actions found to be particularly successful in supporting women at each stage of their transport career. Every organisation has different recruitment requirements and retention challenges, but many of the actions that support women in the transport sector also apply to other sectors of the supply chain and logistics industry.
