Since 1977, WTS International, then called Women’s Transportation Seminar, has focused on promoting the advancement of women in the transportation industry.
Women were largely discouraged from participating in professional associations – unless the activities were deemed educational. In response, a pioneering group of women organized luncheons and workshops, deemed acceptable as “seminars.” They supported one another, used their connections to advance each other, and began to idealize a more diverse, inclusive and equitable transportation industry.
Today, the WTS International is a vibrant and essential part of an industry of more than 40,000 - is the number larger than that? transportation professionals. The execution might have changed over the years--WTS has more than 8,500 members and 60 professional chapters--but the goals remain the same.
Thank you for being a part of the WTS journey!
