Founded in Germany in 2015, the group’s expansion into the UK is designed to “to improve the participation and visibility of women in the country’s growing mobility industry”.
It is the group’s first English-language off-shoot.
“Mobility is undergoing dramatic change and our group wants to help ensure women have a seat at the table, so transport’s future destiny is shaped to meet everyone’s needs,” explains co-founder Sandra Witzel, head of marketing at Mobility as a Service platform provider SkedGo.
“Active leadership from women creates better outcomes for all, not least the mobility sector. At WiM London, we are doing our part to improve diversity and inclusivity.”
The other founders of WiM London are Annie Reddaway, business analyst, mobility at AppyWay and Olga Anapryenka, senior consultant for new mobility at Steer.
“No other city in Europe has more daily transport users than London,” Witzel adds.
The organisation says that all female mobility enthusiasts are invited to join WiM London, from students to CEOs, industry leaders to academics, tech gurus to government workers.
