#WomenMobilize – beyond International Women’s Day!
The whole month of March, we ran the #WomenMobilize Campaign on our Social Media Channels, raising awareness for the challenges women face in the transport sector and for women as transport users. A special milestone was the publication of the 3rd edition of the Remarkable Women in Transport Publication on March 8th, highlighting 20 more inspiring women working towards more sustainable mobility and equitable cities around the world.
In our new TUMI TV episode on female leadership, we heard about success stories, challenges and recommendations from women that have taken leadership roles in the transport sector and therefore are role models to many young professionals and mobility transformers around the world. The #WomenMobilize Campaign was accompanied by events, videos, and cooperation with several ambitious organizations and groups working towards inclusive mobility.
Even though our campaign has come to an end, we continue to work towards our objectives and build partnerships in order to achieve our vision of gender-sensible and equitable mobility. Some things that we are excited for in the upcoming months:
TUMI: Tactical Urbanism Pilot - Replicability Manual in EN and SP
The Manual highlights approaches for ‘building safer urban public spaces for women and girls’, based on the experiences gathered by the Me Muevo Segura-Initiative (“I Move Safely” Initiative) that seeks to improve women’s safety in the City of Bogotá.
Me Muevo Segura partnered up with CAF, TUMI and the District Secretariat for Women Bogotá (SDMujer) to implement a “pilot plan of data-driven interventions for the prevention and heightened perception of violence and sexual harassment against women and girls in urban public spaces.”

As ridership has fallen during the COVID-19 pandemic, so has revenue – public transport agencies across cities worldwide face a critical funding shortfall that threatens jobs and services.
The campaign launched on March 30, The Future of Public Transport confirms that green investment in global public transport systems will not only safeguard existing jobs, but will also create millions of decent, sustainable jobs and cut emissions from the transport sector in cities by over 50% in the next decade. This will create 4.6 million new jobs by 2030, and add many more benefits… (read the full report here )
