Washington, DC (PRWEB) February 05, 2015
ICF International, a leading provider of consulting services and technology solutions to government and commercial clients, has committed to becoming a sponsor of WTS International, the association for the global advancement of women in transportation. The new sponsorship represents a commitment from ICF in support of the association’s programs and operations internationally.
ICF International and WTS made the announcement. “ICF is pleased to sponsor WTS and to promote the attraction, retention, and advancement of women in the transportation and infrastructure fields. With a shared dedication to this important mission, we are confident we will continue to celebrate an increasingly diverse workforce both at ICF and throughout the industry. ICF professionals are currently active in numerous WTS chapters across the U.S.,” said Kristen Klovsky, ICF International Vice President. “We see this relationship with WTS as a logical and valuable extension of our mutual efforts to attract and retain the brightest and best women for our firm and for the transportation industry.”
WTS has been an active voice in the transportation industry since 1977, when its founders realized that professional development and recognition were needed to create industry and government advancement of women in the transportation field. In the 37 years since that time, the association has grown to an international member network of nearly 6,000 transportation professionals, including both women and men. Much of the networking, professional development, and industry collaboration that happens at the association within its local chapters and on an international scale depend greatly on support from both the private and public sector.
“WTS is honored to have ICF International join the roster of organizations that have committed to supporting the mission of WTS International. This new relationship will impact our programming across the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom over the next year. We take pride in these relationships as we continue to grow in these countries with strategic plans for further global expansion. The workforce development initiatives supported by ICF and others to attract, retain, and advance women in transportation make an impact on the world’s infrastructure,” said Marcia Ferranto, President and CEO at WTS.
