When breaking the news to our winners, they were humbled by the recognition and grateful for the distinction.  “Wow! I am truly honored that you have selected me for this award.  I have great appreciation and respect for the terrific work of WTS and its members.  Promoting great women and people of color for leadership roles in the transportation infrastructure and other infrastructure sectors has been a personal mission for more than 20 years”, exclaimed Abbie Goodman.  In response to being told of his award, Tom Tinlin replied “Thank you of course, but it just seems odd that you do what you feel in your heart is right, and you really don’t expect anything in return, never mind people noticing. Thank you for all WTS does for woman in the field and I am happy to be a small champion of that”. 

We recognize these individuals and employers not just for their achievements, but also to acknowledge how they further the WTS mission of advancing women in transportation.

WTS-Boston 2018 Awards Nominations will be available in December 2017.
