TPE has almost 2,500 people across the business and partners in the North of England and into Scotland. The majority of these are in service delivery roles, with 1,680 employed by TPE itself.
This team represents a diverse range of people from different parts of the North of England and Scotland, different backgrounds, ages, genders, ethnicities, sexual orientations, abilities, and religions.
During TPE Week of Inclusion, TransPennine Express will celebrate diversity and embrace individuality to unite communities.
On Monday 22 January 2024, TransPennine Express has unveiled its ‘unity’ train to kickstart its first ever ‘TPE Week of Inclusion’ and partnership with The Proud Trust.
The Nova 1 ‘Unity’ train, is set to travel through the North and into Scotland, becoming a beacon of hope for the millions of diverse communities TPE serves.
The train features the most up to date Pride Progress Flag that includes a five-striped chevron to the left side of the flag representing LGBTQ+ people of colour and the trans community.
As part of TransPennine Express Week of Inclusion, TPE are delighted to partner with The Proud Trust, an LGBT+ youth charity empowering young people to be proud of who they are.
The Proud Trust delivers youth work and one-to-one support across Greater Manchester. The charity also runs a national training and inclusion programme for schools, Proud Connections Live Chat, and manages Manchester’s LGBT+ Centre, The Proud Place.
Lisa Harvey Nebil, CEO at The Proud Trust, said: “Seeing the ‘Unity Train’ in all its glory fills myself and our team with huge pride and we can’t wait for the LGBT+ community to see the train as it travels throughout the north.
“We’ve already received fantastic support from TPE and we’re looking forward to doing more inspiring work together.”
Throughout 2024, TransPennine Express will be working with the charity to support young people across the TPE network.
As part of the week’s activities, TPE are celebrating employees who have their own unique story to share.
Hans Ekonje, Driver Instructor at Manchester Piccadilly, Georgina Young, Regional Customer Experience Manager, Kerri-Anne Scott, Conductor at Preston, Becky Woodhead, Conductor at Cleethorpes and Luke Gardner, Timetable Development and Delivery Manager have all shared their individual stories.
