The editorial staff of WIT’s Redefining the Road magazine recognizes women who have had notable career accomplishments in the past 12-18 months and who have made significant contributions to advance gender equality within their own companies and throughout the transportation industry.

The fourth annual list honors women who exemplify WIT’s mission and encourage the employment of women in the transportation industry, promote their accomplishments, and minimize obstacles in the workplace.

We are thrilled to recognize and celebrate their accomplishments.”
