Webinar slides: Diversifying Uganda’s Professional Driver Workforce

As part of the BMZ funded Professional Driver Training – Uganda 2 (PDT-U II), Transaid and Safe Way Right Way have sought to improve the gender imbalance within Uganda’s transport industry by bringing more women through professional bus and truck driver training and supporting them into employment.

Women face many obstacles in becoming professional drivers such as the prohibitive cost of training, a licence progression system that favours men, and discriminating work environments.

In this webinar we discussed the approaches taken during the programme, and highlighted the insights and learnings that were gathered.
