MV Transportation Inc. extended its long-term partnership with Latinos In Transit (LIT), a non-profit organization dedicated to the advancement and development of Latinos and other minorities in the public transit industry.
LIT members are public and private sector transportation professionals from across the U.S., supporting their mission through advocacy, professional development, mentoring, and networking. In early 2019, MV became LIT’s Founding Sponsor, the organization’s first corporate sponsor since its founding in 2016. MV‘s sponsorship includes representation on the LIT board.
Recently, MV was recognized for their many contributions with the 2021 Latinos in Transit Founders Award presented at the LIT Annual Membership Meeting in November, during the American Public Transportation Association TRANSForm Conference and Expo in Orlando, Fla.
By formally extending its partnership with LIT, MV will continue to provide support for personal training and leadership development, public policy advocacy and underwrite the annual MV Transportation-Latinos in Transit Scholarship award for Latinos dedicated to a career in public transportation, offered through the American Public Transportation Foundation.
“MV is extremely proud of our partnership with Latinos in Transit and all that we have accomplished together,” said Tom Egan, MV Chief Executive Officer. “We look forward to continuing our much-needed focus on expanding diversity and developing talent in the transit industry to further increase the strength of our workforce and help us better serve our customers and communities.”
“We are honored and excited to extend our partnership with an industry leader like MV,” said Alva Carrasco, President of Latinos in Transit. “Their leadership support, dedicated team and strong commitment to equity and diversity continues to help LIT achieve our ambitious goals and create benefits for our members.”
