Diversity

Diversity strengthens the transportation workforce

At DOT, we understand that a strong transportation system depends on a vibrant and diverse workforce, a workforce that reflects America. And that includes women.

So, we've made it a priority to help encourage women to join the next generation of transportation professionals. We want women to be excited by the opportunities available to them in highways and transit, rail and aviation. And we need their skills, experience, and unique point of view to ensure we design the best and most efficient transportation systems possible.

One of our efforts to encourage women to pursue careers in transportation is our Women In Transportation video playlist on YouTube. Today, we added another entry, this one submitted by Cathy Gillen, and I encourage you to watch it and share.
