Global infrastructure service firm AECOM recently announced that it has been named the 2019 Employer of the Year by the Chicago chapter of the Women Transportation Seminar (WTS).
An international organization dedicated to building the future of transportation through the global advancement of women, WTS presents the award “to an organization that excels in encouraging and advocating for the development of women in the transportation industry.”
Project Engineer Bridget Malinowski, who also serves as president of the WTS Chicago chapter, accepted the award on AECOM’s behalf at the 2019 Awards Banquet in Chicago.
“As a woman who works not only in engineering but also in construction, I have always been able to turn to those within the company for support,” Malinowski said in the acceptance speech. “AECOM fosters an environment that encourages women at all levels.”
WTS has more than 6,500 members, including both women and men, and 79 chapters. The organization is also connected to a network of about 40,000 transportation professionals, according to its website.
