Making Inroads for Women in Transportation

The United States Department of Transportation (USDOT) is working to attract more women to transportation professions. The increased participation of women in the labor market is often a significant stimulant of economic growth, and looming shortfalls in labor make it important to draw on all available talent. The Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Women in Transportation initiative was launched at the 2011 APEC Transportation Ministerial Meeting, led by USDOT. The initiative collaborates across APEC economies to promote improved data gathering on women’s participation in transportation occupations, as well as exchanging best practices, tools, and resources for women in the profession. The initiative seeks to develop strategies to advance opportunities for women in transportation.
