Omnitrans CEO/General Manager Erin Rogers has been named “Woman of the Year” by the Women’s Transportation Seminar (WTS) – Inland Empire chapter.
“It is an honor to be acknowledged for my work in the industry I have dedicated my career to and have Omnitrans recognized for the strategic and important work the agency is doing,” said Rogers. “I am proud of Omnitrans’ initiatives to connect our community, and of our team.”
Rogers was nominated and selected by WTS members voting for her leadership in transit service innovation and effectiveness, and her development of women in key roles. Omnitrans’ senior leadership team is 50 percent female, including the agency’s first female director of maintenance. The agency also partners with WTS on events such as Classroom to Career days to expose students to professional possibilities in the industry and build the next generation of transit leaders.
WTS’s mission is to attract, sustain, connect and advance women’s careers to strengthen the transportation industry. “[Rogers] is inspirational,” said WTS Inland Empire Chapter President Stephanie Blanco.
