WTS Celebrates New Partnership with TRB at the 2018 WTS Winter Reception

TRB_Pic_5

WTS Board Chair and Lea+Elliott, Inc. Chairman, Diane Woodend Jones welcomed attendees of Transportation Research Board's (TRB) conference held in Washington D.C. to the 2018 WTS Winter Reception and announced WTS MOU (Memorandum of Understanding) with TRB! Diane stated that the WTS board is focused on building connections within the transportation community and this partnership with TRB represents a significant milestone toward fulfilling the WTS strategic vision of equity and access for women in transportation. The MOU supports both organizations' mutual interest in the professional development of women in transportation, seeks to pursue meaningful research to support gender equity, and provides an actionable plan to advance these initiatives. A very proud moment for WTS!

Diane was joined by guest speakers, Neil Pedersen, Executive Director of TRB and Derek Kan, Under Secretary for Policy at the U.S. Department of Transportation.

The WTS Winter reception is held each year during TRB's annual meeting in Washington, DC. Transportation professionals attend the event and embrace the opportunity to network, share ideas, and create professional alliances that will further their career paths. This year's winter reception enjoyed attendance of well over 300 members of the transportation community; including students, individuals from the public and private sectors, and industry leaders.
