Professional Development

Attendees2WTS thrives on its singular ability to help established and upcoming professionals alike through a multitude of programs designed to develop their skills and decision-making abilities. We emphasize programs that tap the collective abilities of our most experienced, highly placed members, building the next generation of leaders on the wisdom of their predecessors. WTS offers the following opportunities to its members and to the future leaders in the transportation industry:

  • Scholarships, which are awarded annually to highly qualified women who are preparing to enter the transportation industry.
  • The Eno Foundation Scholarship, an early career leadership development program that selects one WTS female member each year for advanced training. Candidates must have finished graduate school within the past five years to qualify.
  • The Leadership Training Program was created by an expert team of professionals and is geared toward women with promise for higher levels of responsibility and leadership in the transportation industry. This is an opportunity for WTS to contribute to the professional development of women who have demonstrated the interest and potential to enhance their leadership skills and advance within the industry. 

In addition to these International professional development programs, many WTS chapters offer their own professional development programs throughout the year. Consult chapter websites and newsletters for more information. For more information, contact WTS Programs.
