Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation Women in Transportation Program Technical Assistance
DevTech provided support to the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Women in Transportation Initiative as it relates to the department’s work to support the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Transportation working group. The goal was to develop and implement a plan of action that addresses gender-related concerns in the transportation sector in the APEC region. APEC is the premier Asia-Pacific economic forum with the goal of supporting sustainable economic growth and prosperity in the Asia-Pacific region. As part of the initiative, DevTech examined the barriers to women’s sustained participation in transportation activities at all levels in both the public and private sectors.
