  • The leadership, skills, and perspectives of women are essential to ensure that the transportation systems of the future respond to the needs of all. In keeping with the changes made in 2019, our selection criteria are more explicitly focused on women interested in achieving equity within communities and the transportation sector. We asked questions of the applications to better recognize the leadership potential associated with lived experiences and non-traditional leadership paths.
