Our recent Sydney Diversity member event marked the launch of the 2018 RTAA Diversity Award. As part of our commitment to the promotion of a diverse rail industry the RTAA initiated the annual Australasian Rail Diversity Award in 2017. The award seeks to recognise and acknowledge our corporate members who set new standards of excellence in the promotion of diverse and inclusive workforces within their organisation.

We warmly invite all our corporate members to nominate for this nationally recognised award and to reflect on their organisations journey towards a truly diverse and inclusive work place.

Nominations are open now and will close on 30 September with the winner to be announced at the RTAA Field Day Dinner in April 2019
