TInnGO, DIAMOND and SUITS projects launch a call for papers for a special issue on the Work journal on Gender, Employment and Transport

The TInnGO, DIAMOND and SUITS projects, all of which focus on promoting inclusive transport and are funded by the European Union´s Horizon 2020 program, have launched a call for papers for a special issue on the Work journal.

The aim of this special issue is to benchmark the current status of the sector regarding gender and diversity, illustrate what problems women experience, and highlight good practices.

Papers may focus on, for example:

  • one part of the transport business ecosystem; e.g. road, rail, air, freight, urban planning, research and innovation, education;
  • career trajectories;
  • barriers (e.g. harassment and discrimination, pay gaps, nonfamily friendly working practices);
  • enablers (e.g.  mentorship, apprenticeships, gender action plans);
  • (inter)national sex disaggregated statistics showing where and how women are employed in the sector;
  • health and safety issues;
  • regional studies (especially from low-middle income countries).

Quantitative, qualitative or case studies will be equally welcomed.
