International Women's Day presents the opportunity to celebrate female trail blazers, women who have climbed the career ladder and are now actively extending the rungs down to the rest of us and also those who are working with us and supporting us in doing so. So if you find yourself at a career crossroads, perhaps take a moment to ponder their advice and ask yourself, what is truly important to you in your next career step and how might you blaze a trail of your own?
We must unlearn our current beliefs and relearn new ones. One of the best ways to eliminate a bias is to prove it wrong through personal experience and engagement.

She has ignored the facts about the failing, worn out nationalised railway of yesterday and the modern, growing and successful railway of today.
On a summer's day in July, we leave behind a rain-flustered London in the middle of an otherworldly thunderstorm following Britain's hottest day in years. The train speeds through English countryside until we're in the darkness of the Eurotunnel, and then - in what seems like the blink of an eye - we find ourselves on French soil.
Here's a question that's not often asked: what if train punctuality is a false measure? Perhaps commuter punctuality is what we should really care about? Instead of the number of trains getting to stations on time, perhaps we would get more useful information if we tracked the number of people being delivered to stations on time.
People across swathes of the UK are being warned of potential disruption as heavy snow is forecast for Friday. The Met Office has issued an "amber"...
Imagine a future where you simply press a button to have your own personal railway car waiting, day or night, to whisk you off at many times the speed of a car. And environmentally friendly, too! This is what we are designing in the 'RailCab' project.
