Gender Equity

The railroad workforce has been traditionally male for generations, but we’re taking initiatives to attract more women to operations and leadership roles. We’ve partnered with @Fairygodboss, the largest career community for women, and we have a platinum partnership with the League of Railway Women. Learn more about how women are advancing their careers at Kansas City Southern.

Giving Back

KCS has a rich history of charitable giving and employee volunteerism. Our annual Holiday Express event raises funds to help communities on the KCS network, and the Mexican counterpart, Tren Navideño, helps children from low-income communities throughout Mexico. Programs such as Matching Gifts and KCS Cares help individual employees give back to their communities.

Environmental Protection

We’re committed to protecting the environment, especially the ecosystems in which we operate. The Monarch Mariposa Project, for example, preserves and protects the habitats of monarch butterflies, which travel along the “Monarch Highway” as they migrate from the United States to Mexico with the changing seasons. This highway is directly along the KCS network route. View our sustainability report to learn more about our commitment to the environment.
