Workshop: Women in ITE
1:00 PM-4:00 PM
Facilitated by Jodi Godfrey, Research Associate, University of South Florida / CUTR, Tampa, FL and Erica Myers, P.E., Senior Engineer, Lee Engineering, Oklahoma City, OK
The Women in ITE are excited to have all our friends back together again, and we have a fun and informative bootcamp in store for all those that are looking to flex their gender inclusion muscles. For this workshop, we are joining forces with ITS America who will be helping to lead these important discussions. The Women in ITE Committee and ITS America, through the Mobility XX initiative, strive to foster diversity and inclusion throughout the transportation industry. Join our efforts as we learn about each other, including what we have in common, and our differences, to prove how varying perspectives are valuable. The workshop will also include breakout sessions where attendees can rotate throughout discussion areas to explore the lessons learned from each of the quarterly virtual information series that occurred in 2021-2022. These session topics include: finding your voice, student to professional transitions, words of wisdom from women in leadership, and keeping women in the workforce. We hope to see you all there!

Developing and Sustaining a Skilled and Diverse Transportation Workforce
The pandemic accelerated changes in the transportation workforce that had already been occurring. Challenges in meeting workforce needs include the Great Resignation of 2021, changing worker expectations and needs, emerging technologies and applications, and expanding skills needed beyond traditional civil engineering. This session will discuss recommended actions to improve talent retention, succession planning, and career pathways in the transportation industry.
