Career Days for Girls
This is a one week shadowing opportunity for girls from 13 - 20. For one week, girls will travel to a different company each day to learn the many careers available in transportation and construction. The host companies in 2017 were: Denver International Airport, Iron Horse Architects, P&H Equipment, RTD, and Wagner Equipment.
This opportunity to expand career options is free. To participate, girls must fill out an application and parents must sign off on their attendance.
USDOT's Secretary of Transportation authorized the Office of Small and Disadvantaged Business Utilization to implement the WITI Program.

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.
