Some key quotes:
When we talk about EDI in transport: it is about representation. But this is a real practical example of what it means to communities and the work we do....it's an absolute essential part of our thinking
That transition from full time education into the first stage of work is such a big step and we need to make it easy as possible for both employers and employees to start the journey they want to go on
