How did the USDOT Women in Transportation Initiative (WITI) start?
Executive Order (EO) 13506, dated March 11, 2009, entitled “Establishing a White House Council on Women and Girls” requires federal agencies to address issues that particularly impact the lives of women and girls and to ensure that Federal programs and policies address and take into account the distinctive concerns of women and girls and include more resources and services in science, engineering, technology, and transportation related fields.
