The American Road and Transportation Builders Association’s (ARTBA) Women Leaders in Transportation Design and Construction (WLDTC) is accepting nominations for its annual awards program until July 12.
The WLDTC Awards honor individuals, companies and public agencies for their innovative efforts in transportation construction and in promoting women leaders in the industry.
The 2013 awards program consists of three categories: The Ethel S. Birchland Lifetime Achievement Award, the Glass Hammer Award and the Future Industry Spotlight Award.
Named after ARTBA’s executive director from the mid-1920s, the Ethel S. Birchland Lifetime Achievement Award is given to at least one woman who has demonstrated outstanding leadership and long-term service in the industry’s public or private sectors.
The Glass Hammer Award honors at least one company in transportation construction for its innovative programs and activities directed at successfully promoting women leaders within their organization.
The Future Industry Spotlight Award recognizes two women students enrolled in undergraduate or graduate studies at a U.S. college or university. These women must have achieved an outstanding academic record and demonstrated extraordinary leadership skills within and outside the academic environment.
ARTBA membership is not required for nominations.
