Jacy Good to Address Women in Transportation

Jacy Good, an advocate and public speaker for cell-free roads, has been confirmed as a keynote speaker for the 2016 annual conference of WTSInternational, the association for the professional advancement of women in transportation.

In May of 2008, both of Good’s parents were killed and she was severely injured on the way home from her graduation ceremony from Muhlenberg College in Allentown, PA. The devastating wreck was caused by a driver distracted by a cell phone conversation. Good now travels the country sharing her story at high schools, colleges, conferences, and corporate events in an effort to prevent such horrors from touching others' lives. Ms. Good has been a guest on The Oprah Winfrey Show, of Maria Shriver at the 2010 Women's Conference, and of United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon at his “Call to End the Global Epidemic of Distracted Driving Campaign.” Good has been featured as a "Hero Among Us" in People magazine and in a January 2015 piece on CNN’s The Human Factor, among many dozens of other print and television profiles. Together with her husband, Steve Johnson, she has crisscrossed the country giving their Hang Up And Drive presentation to over 550 audiences since 2011.

“Though Ms. Good’s story is a tragic one, she is a woman of great strength and perseverance. She has taken this tragedy to fuel her passion for cell-free roads. As we plan for the WTS Annual Conference each year, we seek to partner with an individual that resonates with our mission. Ms. Good exemplifies our association’s guiding principles of diversity, inclusion, and commitment to ethical leadership, integrity, and respect for all,” said Marcia Ferranto, WTS CEO and President.“We look forward to having Jacy Good as our keynote at the 2016 WTS Annual Conference next May in Austin.”
