MV partners with Latinos in Transit to promote industry diversity

Posted on February 12, 2019

MV Transportation Inc. announced a 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. With this partnership, MV becomes LIT’s Founding Sponsor, the organization’s first corporate sponsor since it’s founding in 2016. MV also gains a seat on the LIT Board of Directors and will have a scholarship established in its name to be awarded annually to a Latino dedicated to a career in public transportation.

“We're extremely excited that a company with the heritage of MV’s has partnered with LIT,” said Milo Victoria, President of the LIT Board of Directors. “As an industry leader, they are uniquely qualified to help us meet our goals leveraging their national reach and strong commitment to diversity.”

“We are proud to be associated with Latinos In Transit and are enthusiastic about this new relationship,” said Kevin Jones, MV CEO. “Diversity is an important underpinning for the transit industry and we look forward to working with LIT to help develop a stronger workforce to serve our communities today and in the future.”
