Brenda Williams recognized for chairing AASHTO’s HR Committee

ITD Chief Innovation Experience Officer and Human Resource Administrator Brenda Williams was recently recognized by AASHTO for completing her two-year term as the chair for the HR Committee. She previously served as the vice-chair for four years.  

The purpose of the national HR Committee is to research, recommend, and share best practices and policy initiatives to enable the human resource functions of state transportation agencies to continuously become stronger, innovative, and more efficient.

During her time on the committee, Williams said there were a few highlights, such as creating an HR metrics report to help guide nationwide policies, processes, and best practices. Additionally, they held at least two webinars annually and increased the number of states actively participating in the committee.  

“ITD is doing so many great things focused on the employees,” Williams said. “I was proud to share our best practices with other states.”  

Williams will continue to serve on the AASHTO Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee.  

“It has been an honor to work with such amazing HR professionals around the country who are passionate about making the workplace better,” Williams added.
