Larson Design Group’s Damon Rhodes, P.E., leader of the Pittsburgh/Wexford offices, has joined the WTS International – Pittsburgh Chapter board of directors.
WTS International was founded in 1977 by a group of pioneering women in transportation who realized that women’s careers would benefit from professional development, encouragement and recognition to support their advancement. Now, after more than 40 years, it has 79 international chapters and more than 6,500 members. The Pittsburgh chapter was established in 2015.
