DfT STAT next-generation logistics workforce at NEC

Tracey Worth talked DfT STAT next generation workforce inclusion on the IOC stand at Multimodal in the NEC.

Who is STAT? who are we and what do we do? Being at Multimodal was about taking away and doing that one thing, start your journey today, sign the pledge commitment board for diversity today, here before you leave. Placing 86 employer commitments here today.



Tracey explained

This is the DfT STAT Year of Diversity for logistics and transport. STAT is a voluntary, cross-sector industry body that has been given the responsibility for promoting awareness and access to apprenticeships, sector diversity and promoting transport as a career.


Here at Multimodal you are asked to sign a pledge and help build a toolkit for the future of inclusion in our sector.
