WIiT Paris 2014 : Women's Issues in Transportation

  1. 1. Minister Roselyn Bachelot talked of the strong influ- ence her family had on her choice of politics and advocacy. She shared stories of mini- mization early in her career— clearly these made her stronger and more resolute as she navigated her leadership path. Dr. Sandi Rosenbloom brought new light to the importance of not only using data to understand what is occurring but to incorporate anecdotal evidence. She gave exam- ples of cultural differences in behavior that inform us in a different way about travel behaviors. Sharing from their re- search and experiences, the distinguished panelists opened the conference with messages for the participants to consider as they listen to all of the research that is brought to life this week. Facilitated by Therese McMillan, Dr. Francis The- baud talked about a relation- ship outlook and how policies must look beyond to the differences in impacts on men and women. Sophie Tekie shared framework and challenges of a third world country where often leader- ship has nothing to do with qualifications Themes for the Conference Brought to Life  Final steps to get ready  Air and Space Museum tour  Bicycling in Paris as a Learning Experience  Opening Session  Grand Gala and Awards Women’s Issues in Transportation Bridging the Gap 14 April 2014 Volume 1, Issue 1 Greetings brought to the conference attendees by Helene Jacquot-Guimbal, Ifsttar and Bob Skinner, TRB
  2. 2. The gala, generously sponsored by the FIA, and hosted in their lovely facility, gave guests the chance to celebrate many women, their challenges and their accomplishments. Moderator Mary Crass beautifully described the accomplishment of each of our speakers: Michele Mouton (Race car driver), Marie-Claude Heys-Kieffer (sailor) and Roselyn Bachelot (politician and Minister of numerous de- partments). FIA President Jean Todt graciously greeted the at- tendees and helped present the awards to three very deserving recipients: Dr. Susan Herbal (safety specialist) Dr. Sandy Rosenbloom (travel behavior specialist) Dr. Maryvonne Plessis-Fraissard (sustainable devel- opment specialist) The participants also had the chance to submit re- search needs statements based on the inspiring words shared throughout the even- This quality of this conference has been greatly influenced by the very strong leadership of Dr. Ariane Dupont. Her creativity, her passion for excellence and her personal relationship style has guided every decision. The committee members are grateful to her and the confer- ence participants are the benefi- ciaries of her time, her talent and her heart for the subject matter.
