Congratulations to Secretary Stacy Miller for winning the 2022 Woman of the Year Award! She has set a role model for transportation professionals, and this award is well deserved.

Special thanks to our Keynote Speaker, Eulois Cleckley. We appreciate his support and dedication to advancing women and promoting equity, diversity, and inclusion in the transportation industry.

With much to celebrate, we also have many to thank. This event would not be possible without the generous support of our sponsors:
