For the latest instalment of Global Railway Review’s Women Inspiring Rail series, Sylvia Newell, President of the Canadian Association of Railway Suppliers (CARS) explains how being the minority within the rail sector fuels the fire within her to succeed in a male dominated industry.
“My advice to those thinking about pursuing a career in rail is to definitely go for it! It’s such an amazing industry with many career and growth opportunities. Keep an open mind, do not get discouraged and find a “mentor” or several that you can learn from. Remember, never stay in your comfort zone, as it stunts your growth.”
