The WTS International Community is celebrating DiscoverE Engineering Week!
WTS International Executive Director, Sara Stickler talks Black History Month, "Black History Month is a time for our organization to recommit to the goals of diversity, equity and inclusion."
The start of a new decade has arrived and it’s an exciting time to be a part of WTS. Sara Stickler, Executive Director of WTS and Maggie Walsh, Chair of the WTS Board share their thoughts.
On January 12, 2020, WTS International and co-host, the Women’s Issues in Transportation Committee held the Annual Winter Reception.
This year’s reception marked the formalization of the partnership between WTS International and COMTO National. Freddie Fuller, COMTO National, chair, Brad Mims, COMTO National, president and CEO, Maggie Walsh, WTS International, chair, and Sara Stickler, WTS International, executive director, were onstage for the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) signing.
Do you believe we can shape future generations of transportation leaders? The WTS Foundation does. In fact, it is one of our guiding principles and is integral to the work we do at the WTS Foundation. We not only believe we can shape the next generation of leaders in transportation, but that to do so, we must advance women.
In a survey conducted by WTS International (WTS) in November, half of participants identified retaining and training labor to be one of their biggest challenges in the coming years. Developing our industry’s workforce and increasing its diversity will ensure a more equitable transportation industry.
WTS International (WTS) and the Board of Directors have made it a strategic priority to expand across North America. As WTS grows, our leadership has focused on both supporting longstanding chapters and nurturing newer ones.
There is a question we often hear asked at WTS. What is the role of men in “advancing women in transportation?”
Mike Sweeney, member of the WTS Board of Directors, helps us answer it.
