March 8 is International Women’s Day and this year Arlington Transportation Partners (ATP) is taking the opportunity to celebrate women in transportation. Much of transportation’s history is dominated by men—Henry Ford, the Wright Brothers, Neil Armstrong, and even Elon Musk; however, there are significant moments in transportation that were forged by women.
There are a lot of great reasons to take a walking break during the day. A few minutes of daily activity is good for your heart, the fresh air is good for well, your whole body; plus, stepping away from your desk for a little bit helps re-calibrate your focus.
