Prior to joining WMU, Dr. Doumbia-Henry served in a number of capacities at the International Labour Organization (ILO), including Director of the International Labour Standards Department, Director of the Sectoral Activities Department and Senior Legal Officer in the Office of the Legal Adviser.

When asked about the role of women in the transport sector, Dr. Doumbia-Henry noted that women are facing such challenges as working conditions and human resources policies transport companies have, that are not designed to mainstream gender.

Historically, urban and transport planners have failed to take gender aspects into consideration and due to a systemic lack of awareness and exposure to career pathways, women continue to be underrepresented in transportation occupations.

The inclusion of women in the transportation sector is an economic imperative, critical to the sector’s growth and long-term sustainability, the report reads.

A diverse workforce including various perspectives is essential to develop and implement gender-responsive mobility systems.
