TTC hosts virtual information session with focus on women as Transit Operators
This Thurs., Apr. 28, the TTC will be holding a virtual information session geared towards hiring women as transit operators. Those interested in learning more about exciting career opportunities at the TTC can register at ttc.ca/join in advance of the event.
“TTC operators play a vital role in our city by helping residents get to where they need to go. We know as our city continues to grow, our transit system will grow along with it. These information sessions geared at recruiting more woman will help keep our system robust while at the same time ensuring the workforce reflects our diverse city. Thank you to the TTC for prioritizing this initiative and for their work in hiring more women in Toronto,” said Mayor John Tory.
“Transit operators have kept the TTC moving during the past two years of the pandemic” said TTC Chair Jaye Robinson. “Our goal is to encourage more women to apply for transit operator positions at the TTC, and events such as this help to ensure that our workforce is representative of the diverse communities that we serve.”
“Last year, we saw great success in attracting women to the role of transit operator, in fact, six out of every ten new hires identified as women,” said TTC CEO Rick Leary. “We hope that events like this will continue to showcase the TTC as a place where women can build a rewarding and fulfilling career. I encourage everyone interested in learning more about working in transit to attend.”
The event will take place on Apr. 28, from 1 to 2:30 p.m. It is open to everyone and will provide an opportunity to hear from TTC women employees about what it’s like to work at the TTC, including personal stories, career advice and information about growth opportunities. Participants will also have the opportunity to ask questions.
Additional information sessions will be held throughout the year.
