Siemens_logo_bw_(1)

Siemens Mobility Division out of Sacramento, CA, has contributed $10,000 to the WTS Foundation for the advancement of women in the transportation industry. The selection of WTS Foundation to receive the generous, unrestricted gift is part of an enterprise-wide program at Siemens called “Caring Hands.”

“We are honored and grateful to have been selected by Siemens to receive this generous gift,” said Laurie Cullen, Chair of the WTS Foundation and Mid-Atlantic Aviation Director at VHB.  “WTS Foundation relies on the generosity of companies like Siemens to achieve its mission by enabling us to offer scholarships and educational programming to women at all stages of the career cycle. From middle school students to executive leaders in both the public and private sector, the WTS Foundation works hard to attract, connect, sustain, and advance women in transportation.”

“The leadership at Siemens Mobility recognizes that diversity is critical to advancing our workforce, and WTS is 100% aligned with what Siemens values in the industry. Many of the talented people within the Mobility Group are members of WTS and have experienced the beneficial work that the organization does first-hand,” said Marsha Smith, CFO of Siemens Mobility.

The donation to WTS Foundation was announced in September at an organization-wide town hall held by Siemens to illustrate its support of business-to-society facing topics across the industry.
