TRUSS has been a self-sustaining, women’s networking and support group in PennDOT District 8 since November 2018. The group was created by an employee to reach out to women across the entire district, ranging from equipment operators to clerk typists to engineers. This initiative brought women in the district closer and showcased assets that women can bring to the workforce. The group is represented by a committee of different generations, units, and backgrounds and is backed by executive-level employees who all share the same vision, mission, and values.
