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, WTS International is a vibrant and essential part of an industry of more than 40,000 transportation professionals. WTS has more than 8,500 members and 62 professional chapters.
Thank you for being a part of the WTS journey!
