2021 marks the third year that Vulog has been putting the spotlight on incredible women moving the mobility industry. In the year since we published our last report, we have seen tremendous change and progress across the mobility sector, specifically, which has had a widespread impact on all facets of people's lives.
Much of the acceleration surrounding the transportation and mobility sectors has been a direct result of the Covid pandemic which forced individuals, companies, and governments to reevaluate their priorities and implement new strategies, a lot of which have been spearheaded by women.
In addition to transforming the means by and frequencies in which we move, the pandemic also underscored the importance of personal mobility when it comes to efficiency, accessibility, and of course, safety.
Furthermore, it has shed light on many people who change the world daily without receiving due recognition. From nurses to frontline workers, we are reminded that many of the world’s biggest “game-changers” are often underrepresented and bring about change silently, from behind the scenes.
Vulog's Top Women report ensures that - pandemic or no pandemic - the incredible women driving change, but especially in the mobility revolution, are given a voice and honored for their contributions to the industry and society at large.
In handing over the mic to the industry's Top 21 women in mobility, we gain important insights into their vision of how mobility supports and/or impacts global efforts to accelerate sustainability and promote inclusion. One key takeaway from the pandemic is the capacity for new mobility to mitigate both issues and act as a catalyst for long-term change.
This year's report features the unique perspectives of 21 women who come from diverse fields of expertise and backgrounds (from carsharing and ride-hailing to private industries and public/government organizations, or academia). These insights can highlight how mobility can be the solution to solving the sustainability and inclusivity challenges we face each day.
