“We asked the women to be frank, and they delivered.”

Grace Crunican, General Manager, Bay Area Rapid Transit System (BART)

Shirley DeLibero, Former CEO Metropolitan Transit Authority of Harris County, Texas (Houston Metro)

Ann Hershfang, Former Board Member Massport and Mass Turnpike, Founder of WalkBoston

Elizabeth Levin, President, Liz Levin & Company

Mary Jane O’Meara, Former Director of the Tobin Bridge; Associate Vice President, HNTB

 

“They were terrible to me. Every morning there were obscenities carved into my wooden door. When I would walk through the car barn they would call me all kinds of names. They were very vocal about the fact that I was black—and they didn’t say black then.”   —Shirley DeLibero

“Fred Salvucci, who later created the Big Dig Project, is one of the smartest and most able people in Massachusetts. And I had said something at one of the meetings and everyone ignored it. Fifteen minutes later, Fred said, ‘Let’s go back and discuss what Ann mentioned.’ It was the first time I was noticed. It blew me away.”   —Ann Hershfang

And they’re just getting started.

Two WTS International Past Presidents, Grace Crunican and Boston’s own Liz Levin, have co-authored the book Boots on the Ground, Flats in the Boardroom: Transportation Women Tell Their Stories. Featuring first-hand accounts from 18 pioneering women, their anecdotes and experiences will change your professional life and entertain you personally. They’re frank. They’re candid. And on September 17, they’re here. WTS-Boston presents a rare and unusual panel and roundtable with some of these women!

Come see what else they have to say. This is a program you do not want to miss.
