STV Transit and Highway Civil Engineering Specialist Gabriela Gonzales was recently awarded the 2021–2022 Women’s Transportation Seminar (WTS) Greater Chicago Chapter’s Diversity in Transportation Scholarship.

Gonzales graduated from the University of Illinois Chicago (UIC) earlier this month with a master’s degree in Construction Engineering and Management. She also serves as president of UIC’s student chapter of the Construction Management Association of America.

“I am grateful for the value that WTS places on women’s education and professional growth,” Gonzales said. “This scholarship and others like it empower and celebrate women in the construction industry. I’m also thankful for the amazing transportation professionals on our STV team.”

When Gonzales started at STV this past summer, she brought seven years of field experience in vertical construction and transportation. In addition to her new UIC master’s degree, she also holds a bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering and a master’s degree in Business Administration and Management from the Universidad Católica Boliviana San Pablo in her native Bolivia.
