Women's Transportation Issues in Developing Nations - Get involved in May/June Dialogue
Dear Friends: I very much hope that you will take the time to have a close look at this, and if possible to join their discussions. Our World Transport/New Mobility Agenda has for many years been firmly dedicated to increasing the participation and leadership roles of women in the transport dialogue. And here is a chance for us to prove it.
We are pleased to invite the more than one thousand individuals and groups who are participating in the Kyoto World Cities Challenge and the World Transport/New Mobility Agenda and its several international programs, to join the dialogue which is being organized by the program on Mainstreaming Gender into the World Bank's Transport Sector. We hope you will chose to get involved and share your ideas and comments with the group, and in this way make your voice heard both within the GATNET program and in the immediate follow-on meeting of the Transportation Research Board's (TRB) Committee on Women's Issues in Transportation that is being convened in Boston in July.
