About Roquita

It’s been said success comes to those who are too busy to be looking for it. Roquita C Williams is a living example of this as an award winning leader in the transportation industry for over 20 years. Being among the 10% of female executives in the male dominated railroad and transit industries was not enough for this firecracker. In 2016 this real life super woman (with a real cape in tow) traded her heels in for steel toe boots, becoming the only female executive certified as freight train conductor. In addition to an amazing stage presence and compelling storytelling, Roquita can help audiences discover the courage it takes operate a 14,000 ton train. This is a rare motivational speaker you do not want to miss!

Roquita has been recognized nationally – Top 40 under 40, Super Women in Business, Progressive Railroad’s Rising Stars of North American Railroads and recipient of NAACP Distinguished Service Award
