ITD Recognized As 'Good Place To Work'- By Women's Group

Is it ironic that a place that JUST got a woman on their Board for the first time in their history was recognized for being a great place to work by the 'Women In Transportation' group?

The Treasure Valley chapter of the women's group says the Idaho Transportation Department is a pretty good place to work. WTS cited the department’s outstanding leadership and its record of support for women in the transportation industry as reasons for the award. I'm not sure former ITD Director Pam Lowe would agree, after claiming that the fact that she's female played a role in her firing, but it's good to hear that ITD backs it's female employees.

Here's more on this award from the ITD website.
