Finally, check out the newest CE student group, Women in Transportation! From the WTS chapter:
“We are excited to announce that a new Women in Transportation Seminar (WTS) Student Chapter is forming at Portland State University! Please help us welcome this new chapter at their first ever event.
Come to learn about the benefits of a WTS Student Membership. Several transportation professionals from a variety of local organizations will also attend this event to show support for the new chapter. We are asking professionals that attend to share, and recruit for, the latest internships and job opportunities at their organizations. This will be an excellent networking opportunity! There will also be opportunity to share your ideas for future membership benefits and chapter events. We encourage all students, faculty and professionals with an interest in transportation to attend this event – it is open to all genders (we encourage men to attend!) and all majors.
LUNCH WILL BE PROVIDED! Please RSVP early as space is limited.
WTS is an international organization dedicated to building the future of transportation through the global advancement of women.
