Women in Shared Mobility

movmi has built a co-hort of 100+ women leaders and experts in transportation through its Women in Shared Mobility interview series. Over the past 5 years, movmi has been hosting this series to amplify the voices of women who work in transportation, specifically within shared mobility.

Why is this important? Because less than 22% of the transportation workforce is female. And of those less than 3% are in a CEO position.

This means that our transportation system has an inherent design bias and we’re committed to do our part to lift women up in our space. And to ultimately diversify the workforce that is deciding how we all move around every day.

Empower Women in Shared Mobility Award 2024

In order to bridge the gender gap and to create a more balanced and equitable transportation ecosystem, we need more women making decisions at the table. That is why we are looking for women entrepreneurs that are tackling the transportation problems of tomorrow for our EmpowerWISM 2024 Program.
