Frank Monkiewicz Photography www.frankmonkiewicz.com

Written By: Robin Mannion, CTPS

Over 100 colleagues, friends, chapter leaders, and WTS sponsors came out to honor Dorri Giles Raposa, Senior Vice President of HDR, and WTS-Boston recipient of the 22nd Leadership Award, at the annual leadership forum.  Chapter President Rebecca Williamson praised Ms. Giles Raposa for her exceptional vision, skillful strategy, commitment to building better communities, and mentorship of women in the field.

Speaking about the friendships and professional connections she has made during her 28-year membership in WTS-Boston, Ms. Giles Raposa reminded those in the audience of the significant advancement that women have made in the transportation industry over the last three decades.  She thanked the founding members of the chapter and noted that as a “second generation” member, their leadership, guidance and work on behalf of other women helped pave the path of her career.  Ms. Giles Raposa noted that one of the chapter’s founding members, Mary Jane O’Meara, often said that as each woman advances in the field, she should reach back and grab the hand of another woman.  To the newer members of WTS, she urged them to lean-in, learn and aspire to become a future leader.
