WTS-DC Wins Diversity Award and Achieves Gold in the Circle of Excellence

WTS18-D3-3164
At the WTS Annual Conference in San Diego in May, WTS-DC was the proud winner of WTS International’s Diversity Award as well as a recipient of Gold status in the Chapter Circle of Excellence program.
 
The WTS International Circle of Excellence program celebrates the success of each chapter for its efforts to achieve benchmarks in chapter performance. Chapters can earn Gold, Silver, or Bronze recognition by demonstrating member retention and growth, holding regular board meetings and documenting them through meeting minutes, publishing a chapter newsletter, organizing regular public programs, and providing ongoing communications to members through email and social media. This is WTS-DC’s second year achieving Gold status since the program began in 2014.
 
The WTS Diversity Award recognizes one chapter whose successful initiatives incorporate diversity into chapter leadership and chapter programs. The award considers how the chapter promotes diversity, actively works to reduce obstacles, and works to attract and recruit culturally and otherwise diverse audiences into chapter leadership. WTS-DC has a diverse Board made up of 30 transportation professionals from a variety of disciplines whose careers range from entry-level to retiree. In addition, WTS-DC has had an active Diversity Committee since at least the late 1990s. The Diversity Committee arranges one program annually with a diversity focus and submits articles on diversity topics to the chapter newsletter. Recently, the WTS-DC Diversity Committee assisted in reviewing scholarship applications to ensure diversity among the recipients.
