Making the Connection: Women in Transit Virtual Information Session

This article, from May 4, has information on “Making the Connection: Women in Transit”, a virtual information session for women who may want to explore a career as an HSR operator.

Hello Ward 8 Neighbours,

The HSR will soon be looking to recruit new bus operators to join its team. With a focus on women, who remain under-represented in the industry, the HSR will be hosting a special virtual information session to encourage more women to consider a career in transit.

A message from Debbie Dalle Vedove, Director of Transit:

This month the HSR will begin recruiting bus operators. As women remain an under-represented group in transit, this year we’re hosting a special event to encourage more women to consider a career in transit.

“Making the Connection: Women in Transit Virtual Information Session” will stream live on the City’s YouTube channel on May 11th at 6 p.m. and will feature a panel of women from the transit industry who will share their experiences and answer questions from viewers.

Residents will have the opportunity to submit their questions to the panel before and during the event via email at busoperator@hamilton.ca.

The City will be accepting applications between May 13 and June 2, 2021.
