Among WTS Foundation's various efforts to support the advancement of women in transportation is the pursuit of research relevant to the industry.

Through the generosity of thousands of WTS members and supporters, the Foundation has initiated, sponsored and published various research projects, including the MOVE Project, below. 

The WTS MOVE Project

Transforming transportation workplaces for women and women of color:

M - Money: Equal pay policies and practices.

O - Opportunity: How employers identify and cultivate diverse talent at every level

V - Vital work-life supports: Everyday workplace culture and programs that minimize work-life conflicts that can hold back women, in particular

E - Entrepreneurship: How women can advance through business ownership

The MOVE project involves an annual survey of industry employers, segmented appropriately for meaningful comparison by industry professionals, in which employers will provide data that measures factors proven to be correlated with meaningful outcomes. The inaugural year of the program is underway.

Results of WTSF/MOVE will show:

How many women and women of color are in the transportation industry’s management pipeline, and where they are positioned

How transportation employers put equal pay policies into practice

How transportation employers train and develop women and women of color to be leaders

What work-life programs best remove barriers to women’s career success

How transportation employers leverage women and minority-owned businesses

All participating employers will receive:

A custom, confidential employer scorecard that analyzes their workplace for women and women of color compared to the industry aggregate and key subsectors

Recommendations for best practices and programs that are proven to advance women

Candidacy for the WTS Best Employers list, to be announced upon compilation of first year results

Candidacy for the PINK magazine Best Employers for Women list

Results will not be published in any manner that identifies individual employers, other than those cited for best practices and recognition for excellence. Employers will share in the cost of administering the project. If your company is interested in participating in MOVE, please email Joanne Cleaver.
