Chapter History

Celebrating 30 Years of Advancing Women in Transportation in Wisconsin

In February 1989, the Wisconsin DOT and the National WTS sponsored a reception in Madison to introduce the idea of WTS in Wisconsin. More than 70 women and men attended, and from this event a dedicated group of transportation professionals formed the Wisconsin WTS Chapter Development Steering Committee. A few months later, the Wisconsin Chapter gained National affiliation. The Wisconsin Chapter continues to achieve the goals of WTS:

  • Being the preeminent multi-modal transportation association

  • Creating and providing access to a diverse network of transportation professionals

  • Promoting diversity of gender and race across all modes of disciplines within the transportation sector

  • Advocating for the professional development of women

  • Developing a nationwide network of chapters and growing a membership base dedicated to advancing transportation

The Wisconsin Chapter celebrated its 30th anniversary on October 9, 2019 with a special reception at the Madison Central Library. Keynote speakers included US Senator Tammy Baldwin and WisDOT Assistant Deputy Secretary Joel Nilsestuen, who spoke about the future of transportation both nationally and statewide.  WTS International Board Chair, Maggie Walsh and WTS International Director, April Rai also attended the event.
