Abstract

This article is a call to action for Human Factors and Transport Researchers to create a fairer society, by closing the gender data gap. The need for gender equitable research outcomes is put forward, and practical steps to further this goal are provided to ensure gender is considered at all stages of the research lifecycle. The journey of a voluntary task force from a transport research group in the United Kingdom is described. Insights following a review of their own research practice is provided, describing the challenges to, and opportunities for, closing the gender data gap. The need for greater guidance and emphasis on equity within research teams is recognized, and examples of how researchers at different stages of their career can make a difference are provided.
