On Wednesday, 3rd April 2019, the winners of the 2018 Australasian Diversity in Rail Award winners were announced.

Level Crossing Removal Authority was awarded with the 2018 Diversity in Rail Award and Alium Works received a Highly Commended.

The RTAA is proud to recognise the outstanding achievements of members in the promotion of diversity and workplace inclusion through the establishment of the Australasian Rail Diversity Award.

The award represents our response to the chronic skills shortage that continues to affect the Australian rail community, and is also reflected in our strategic priorities. We know that creating a diverse and inclusive workforce is one way to redress this issue. Added to this, diverse workforces have been proven to increase business outcomes.

Congratulations to both Level Crossing Removal Authority & Alium Works for the work you are doing to create a diverse workforce.

The annual RTAA Dinner was historically called the No Tie Dinner. To align more with our Key Priorities in making rail more inclusive and diverse, the RTAA has decided to rename the dinner from the No Tie Dinner to the RTAA Annual Dinner.

In a ‘non’ Field Day year, the RTAA Annual Dinner is held in August.

The RTAA  Dinner is renowned for being an informal and relaxed evening. It provides an opportunity for rail friends and colleagues to meet and share stories over a good meal, accompanied by Australian wines.
