The American Road & Transportation Builders Association’s (ARTBA) Women Leaders in Transportation Design and Construction (WLTDC) Council announced Wednesday that it is seeking nominations for its annual awards program.
The program honors “extraordinary efforts of individuals, companies and public agencies that have demonstrated leadership and dedication to innovation in the transportation construction field as well as the promotion of women leaders within the industry.”
The association will present awards in three categories:
The Ethel S. Birchland Lifetime Achievement Award: This 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. It is named after ARTBA’s executive director from the mid-1920s.
The Glass Hammer Award: This award honors at least one company in the transportation construction industry that has innovative programs and activities directed at successfully promoting women leaders within their organization.
Future Industry Spotlight Award: This award recognizes two women students enrolled in undergraduate or graduate studies at a U.S. college or university who have achieved an outstanding academic record and demonstrated extraordinary leadership skills within and outside the academic environment.
To nominate a woman or company, visit artbatdf.org. ARTBA membership is not required. The deadline to submit a nomination is at the close of business July 11.
ARTBA will recognize winners at an awards luncheon during the association’s National Convention in Rancho Palos Verdes, Calif., September 7-9.
