Hello everyone from the wilds of Central Burma!
“Everything I've done has prepared me for ice swimming.”
On the railway, Jade Perry works as a programme integration manager in Scotland. In freezing waters, she's a world champion ice swimmer – and just one of our many employees achieving great things with the support of an inclusive organisation.
Jade says her extraordinary training gives her unique perspectives that she can take back to her career on the railway. She says: “The open water swimming definitely makes you feel much more part of the ecosystem within which we live … You really get a perspective of yourself as part of a much bigger, and much diverse environment.
“It really helps you value the environment that we are in, value the greenness, the beauty of it, the trees, and it helps you understand and see the impact that we have on the environment, the built environment and how we can do things differently.
“Ultimately, we work in the railways and we're there to help people make the journeys out to beautiful places like Scotland.”

Strength and creativity
We continue to provide an environment that helps everyone to be the best that they can be. The differences between us are what add depth, strength and creativity to our work, allowing individuals and teams to harness their talent and capabilities and help improve our railway.
We aspire to make the best use of our people’s talent and capabilities and to provide real opportunities for their professional development.
There is more to do – but the success of our work on diversity and inclusion, and the excitement of being part of the biggest transformation of Britain's rail industry in history, are starting to make Network Rail an employer of choice.

What diversity and inclusion means to us

Our aspiration is that the behaviours and actions that support diversity and inclusion will come from the conviction of everyone here at Network Rail – making diversity and inclusion a conscious part of how we run our business throughout Britain.
