Wednesday, May 1, 2019 by Tai Moses
The Central Texas chapter of Women’s Transportation Seminar International has conferred its 2018 Woman of the Year award on Dee Anne Heath, director of external affairs at the Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority. Heath was recognized for being an “outstanding role model and having contributed to the advancement of women and minorities in the transportation industry,” according to the press release. Each year, WTS celebrates one woman “who exemplifies the mission and values of furthering equality in the workplace for women, and advancing women in transportation across all disciplines. WTS recognized Dee Anne with this award based on her leadership and contributions, and her efforts to advance the reputation and credibility of women in transportation.” Under Heath’s guidance, Mobility Authority launched MoveFWD, a Workforce Collaborative of Central Texas, a program that advances “the unemployed, underemployed, women, and minorities, while filling critical employment gaps.” Said Heath, “This award is such an honor and meaningful achievement in my career. I’ve been blessed to work with some amazing women and men throughout my career who have provided me with access to opportunities, mentoring, and guidance. I endeavor to provide that same support to the individuals I work with, in the hopes of continually creating an environment that fosters the growth and success of strong women.”
