MMM Group is an active member of the Toronto chapter of the Woman’s Transportation Seminar (WTS), and a proud supporter of the group’s activities.

The goal of WTS is to expand opportunities for women in the transportation industry by providing professional development, leadership programs, mentoring, and career advancement. At various networking opportunities throughout the year, members are able to meet others in the industry that share their passion and desire to break through perceived barriers to achieve career success.

WTS is an international organization with two Canadian chapters, one in Vancouver and one in Toronto. MMM is represented at the Toronto Chapter by Mara Bullock, P.Eng Transportation – Major Projects, a member on the Board of Directors, and Rhonda Wild, Manager, Human Resources, a member of the Mentoring Committee. These two women have been helping grow WTS Toronto over the past two years through establishing the first Mentoring Program, first Scholarship Program, and the first Corporate Sponsorship Program. Mara will also be the main point of contact and responsible for the planning and organizing of the 2016 Annual Dinner in October, a WSP sponsored event.

“With more than 28% female professionals in the organization, diversity within our teams is encouraged and supported, which is one of the reasons that MMM has been a corporate sponsor of the WTS Toronto Area chapter since the launch of the sponsorship program”, says Dave Jull, P.Eng Senior VP Transportation.
