About the Program
WTS encourages the professional development of its members and promotes the industry recognition of women in transportation. For WTS-OC, these goals are realized in part through our Mentoring Program, which matches up-and-coming transportation professionals and college students whose studies focus on transportation with an accomplished industry professional.
