(Los Angeles, March 3, 2022) LIT President Carrasco will be honored with a Conference of Minority Transportation Officials (COMTO) award. COMTO’s “Celebrating Women Who Move the Nation” awards breakfast recognizes the outstanding contributions of women leading and advancing America’s transportation industry. In observance of Women’s History Month, to date, COMTO says it has inducted 116 women into this signature class of leaders in the transportation industry.
COMTO explains the awards represent a broad cross-section of multi-modal transportation in both the private and public sectors, and these women exemplify the very definition of excellence. While their areas of influence and affiliations are diverse, their unequivocal commitment to advancing and strengthening the nation’s infrastructure is unparalleled, COMTO concludes.
