Choosing Transportation:  Attracting Women to the Profession

This two-day event, hosted in Memphis, Tennessee on March 18-19, 2015 focuses on creating action items and deliverables with the goal of attracting, retaining and advancing a diverse transportation workforce.  The event features Susan Kurland, the Assistant Secretary for Aviation and International Affairs of the US Department of Transportation. 

The University of Memphis is well-positioned to host this event as Memphis has the largest percentage of employees working in the transportation sector, more than any other metropolitan area in the United States, and also houses the Southeast Transportation Workforce Center.  

Space is limited, but the summit is open to a national audience and will address all available pathways to transportation careers, including high school programs; technical, community college, and university education; military and veteran transition; and career retraining and reentry opportunities, as well as progression throughout a job/ career path.  It will include dynamic panel discussions, strategic breakout sessions relevant to major workforce initiatives, and the Blue Pump Gala, an event to raise scholarship funds for female transportation students.
