WTS Creates LaHood Award

WTS International recently announced the creation of a new annual award—the WTS Secretary Ray LaHood Award—which will be bestowed on men in the U.S. who have been key to the organization’s efforts to attract, retain and advance women in transportation.

Fifteen percent of WTS International members are men. The award will be presented at the national level and by all 53 professional chapters.

Marcia Ferranto, WTS International’s president and chief executive officer, spoke about the decision to name the award after the former DOT secretary, who served from 2009-2013. “The impact that men have on the advancement of women was clearly illustrated during former Secretary LaHood’s term. All over the U.S., Canada and the United Kingdom, we will be carrying on his legacy,” she said. For details, click here.
