Join us for a webinar with leading industry experts to discuss gender equality in the Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) sector and comment on the results of a new research study conducted for WIN-ITS, a project funded by the Nordic Council of Ministers.

Over the past six months, Trivector Traffic, EIT Urban Mobility and ITS organisations in Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Finland and Estonia have been investigating the state of gender equality in the ITS sector. At the webinar, we’ll talk with leading industry experts about the results of the research study and their thoughts on the future of gender equality in ITS.

The event begins with Julia Nyberg from Trivector Traffic presenting main findings from the study we undertook in the beginning of 2024 to understand the status of gender equality in tech transport (with a focus on the Nordic countries). Our expert panel consisting of Anna Clark (Trivector Traffic), Lasse Schelde (IDA) and Marianne Weinreich (Weinreich Mobility) will comment on the study results, contextualise the findings based on their own industry experience and discuss how the results can be used in the future to promote a more gender-equal sector.

Agenda: 13.00-14.00 (CET)

  • Presentation of the study’s main findings by Julia Nyberg (Trivector Traffic)
  • Panel discussion with Anna Clark (Trivector Traffic), Lasse Schelde (IDA) and Marianne Weinreich (Weinreich Mobility)
  • Q&A and wrap-up by Dr. Christian Dymén (Trivector Traffic)

If you are working within ITS, transport planning or the tech sector and you are interested in gender equality issues, then this event is for you! Don’t miss out and join the conversation.

She was born in the UK, grew up in Brussels and has lived in Sweden for over 10 years. Anna’s interest and expertise lie in the intersection between transport, sustainability and innovation. She is particularly interested in data science and opportunities for digitisation and data-driven solutions for the transition towards a more sustainable transport system. She complements her interest and expertise in data science and transport technology with her broad competence and experience in the field of transport and mobility, e.g. in policy, public-private collaboration, innovation theory, business models and communications. She has worked with many facets of the sustainable transport system, e.g. cycling, future mobility, health and transport, public transport and MaaS, electrification, freight traffic, ITS and SUMPs in Sweden, the Nordics and Europe. In addition to almost 10 years of experience as a consultant in Sweden, she has worked with corporate innovation, with EU funding of innovation projects in mobility, and with EU policy and project management of EU RD&I projects in mobility based in Denmark and Belgium.

For the last six years, she’s been Market Manager in Ramboll’s Smart Mobility division where she started focusing on gender issues. She’s lead author of the report “Gender and (smart) mobility” published in 2021, which she turned into an online training course with EIT Urban Mobility, who also shot the video “How to make urban cycling more attractive to women.” She’s currently an independent advisor at Weinreich Mobility.
