Equity, Diversity and Inclusion

WTS International's Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion initiative promotes a vision of full equity and access for women in transportation. Diversity and inclusion have always been at the core of WTS; this aims to form strategic goals and actionable solutions to attain equity and access. The initiative is led by the Equity, Diversity, & Inclusion Committee of the International Board. 

WTS defines diversity as the inclusion of differences and similarities from all categories of membership including ethnicity, age, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, geography, and profession. WTS defines inclusion as the action of making sure that everyone is welcomed, involved, and engaged.
