Practices to Attract, Retain, and Promote Women in Transportation – Meeting the Goal of 10% in 10 years Presented by MobilityXX and Iteris

A MobilityXX Webinar, sponsored by Iteris

What are best practices in hiring, supporting, retaining and empowering women in transportation? Are we really moving the needle to increase the number of women in our field? What are MobilityXX Pledge companies doing to increase the number of women in the transportation sector? 

Mobility XX is partnering with Iteris to present a webinar to help answer these questions and engage participants in how we promote diversity and a more inclusive transportation system. MobilityXX, a partnership between the Intelligent Transportation Society of America, WTS International, and The Ray, is engaging the transportation industry to increase the number of women in transportation by 10% over the next 10 years. The MobilityXX Pledge Program asks organizations to pledge their commitment to improving diversity, equity, and inclusion in the workplace.  We know that a more diverse workforce creates a more diverse system. 

Iteris is a proud sponsor of MobilityXX and is hosting companies/organizations who signed onto the Pledge to share their ideas, success stories, best practices and challenges to advance women in transportation. Join us to hear from female transportation leaders about their progress on the Pledge, the impact on their organizations, and discuss future efforts to meet the 10% goal.   

Outcomes: Participants will hear about strategies and practices that can improve DEI within their workplace and learn more about the MobilityXX Pledge Program.
