ARTBA Women Leaders in Transportation Design and Construction Council Strategic Plan

  1. 1. ARTBA Women Leaders in Transportation Design and Construction Council Strategic Plan Mission Statement: The ARTBA Women Leaders in Transportation Design and Construction Council (hereinafter referred to as the Women Leaders Council) will promote leadership and career advancement for professional women in the transportation design and construction industry through networking, mentoring, recognition and educational activities in partnership with ARTBA and other stakeholders. Introduction: The Women Leaders Council will focus on raising the profile of women within ARTBA, as well as supporting and attracting more professional women to the transportation design and construction industry. It is important to note that the Council’s activities are open to all ARTBA members. The ultimate goal to get more women involved with ARTBA and engaging the entire membership will be critical to the Council’s success. Ultimately, as women become more integral to the organization, it may be that the Council’s purpose may evolve. The intent of the Women Leaders Council is to support ARTBA’s primary mission of aggressively growing, stabilizing and protecting transportation infrastructure investment. The Council will focus on issues of general concern to the transportation design and construction industry and not gender-specific issues. However, it is recognized that there are still real or perceived barriers for women within the transportation design and construction industry – the Women Leaders Council will mitigate these by providing support and recognition for women within ARTBA. Further, there are not enough young people entering the professional workforce within this engineering and construction industry (men or women). The Council’s objective will be to work on ways to showcase the many benefits that this industry can provide a professional career (with emphasis on attracting women to the profession). The Women Leaders Council will achieve its mission through the Goals and Objectives described below: Goals & Objectives: Goal 1: Raise the Profile of Professional Women in Transportation Design and Construction within ARTBA. Objectives: 1) Sponsor webinars with female speakers on topics of general interest (performance measure: 2 per year) 2) Continue the ARTBA Women Leaders in Transportation Design and Construction Awards program (performance measure: 1 Ethel Birchland Lifetime Achievement Award, 1 Glass Hammer, and 2
