The WTS St. Louis “All About Belonging” – A discussion series to create a more inclusive industry is intended to be our local transportation industry’s opportunity to have guided discussions and learning on range of topics in the DEI space. We are bringing in speakers to start and facilitate these hour-long discussions to create the safe space for us all to learn and grow together.

WTS St. Louis ‘All About Belonging’ series– March 14th first meeting:
Our St. Louis board is beyond excited to get this work started and announce that from 11:30-12:30pm our first speaker will be Cheryl Milton Roberts, MoDOT’s Senior Diversity and Inclusion Specialist. Cheryl will be kicking off our series and sharing more on what is DEI, why is it important, what role do we all play, and share some level setting language. Tom Blair will also add some introductory remarks on the importance of this work, discussion series, and why belonging is needed in our industry.
