International Women's Day 2017

On the occasion of International Women's Day, celebrated on March 8, we invite you to discover the inspiring profile of a female employee of RATP Dev America Group.

>> Mirchaye Kebede, Deputy Director of DC Streetcar, RDMT, Washington DC, U.S.A.


“I have been working for RDMT, in Washington DC, for four years. I joined the team in Washington as an Administrative Assistant during the start-up phase of the DC Streetcar project. The environment was fast paced, dynamic and exciting – a great learning atmosphere that gave me the opportunity to work on all aspects of the project and develop the skills to transition to operations. I have now been the Deputy Director of DC Streetcar for two years. The mentorship and support of a local team that values diversity and believes in developing young talent in the transit industry has had a significant impact on my career. Although being a woman in a largely male dominated field is at times intimidating, having the opportunity to work with and for women who excel in this field is encouraging and motivating. I hope to have the same impact on my team.”
