Cubic announced on Thursday that Jannet Walker Ford, vice president of Government Relations, will be honored with the first-ever National Business Achievement Award for her leadership and dedication to the transportation industry during the  Miami Women Who Rock’s (MWWR) sixth annual Fifty Shades of Pink RockStar Awards Luncheon in Coral Gables, Florida. 

MWWR is a women’s network that promotes health and wellness causes and initiatives for women in local communities, throughout the U.S. and globally.

With more than two decades of leadership experience in the transportation industry, Walker Ford strives to inspire women and minority professionals to pursue roles in STEM and mentor those within the transportation industry. 

As vice president of Government Relations, she advocates for bipartisan political support for major infrastructure investment in the U.S. Walker Ford works with congressional staff on new transportation authorization language, positions our customers to navigate the legislative process and acts as a liaison with the Executive Branch, other key transportation administrations and lobbyists to advance for transportation policies and programs.

In addition to her role at Cubic, Walker Ford currently serves on the American Public Transportation Association (APTA) Board of Directors, APTA Foundation Board, Cultural Council of Greater Jacksonville-Vice Chair, Women’s Transportation Seminar (WTS) International, WTS Foundation as Vice Chair and ENO Transportation Advisory Board.

“Living up to the position of a ‘leader’ can be challenging, yet it is rewarding and satisfying when I remember my role to inspire women to continue to push industry boundaries and make a difference in their communities,” said Walker Ford. “As leaders, we must remain committed to supporting one another both professionally and personally. I’m humbled to be recognized by an organization, such as MWWR, that works to empower all women to be the best they can be, in every aspect of their lives.”
