Urban is pleased to announce that Carol Martsolf, PE, PMP, CPLP, LEED AP, has been named vice chair of the American Society of Civil Engineers’ (ASCE) Members Of Society Advancing Inclusion Council (MOSAIC). Ms. Martsolf is a vice president and director of training in Urban’s Philadelphia headquarters.
"Carol was an asset to the Committee on Diversity and Inclusion and I’m excited to have her continue with MOSAIC as vice chair,” said Dr. Yvette E. Pearson, chair of MOSAIC. “I believe Carol’s passion for equity and inclusion combined with her expertise in leadership and training position her to make strong contributions to ASCE’s efforts toward an inclusive culture."
“I am truly honored to be taking on the responsibility of vice chair for MOSAIC,” Ms. Martsolf said. “To be able to help ASCE on a global scale to support a more inclusive culture – as well as provide members with tools and training to enhance inclusion, diversity, and equity – really means a lot to me. I’m so excited to be involved at this level and to help champion something so very important in our industry.”
MOSAIC evolved from ASCE’s previous Committee on Diversity and Inclusion. It provides ASCE with leadership in all matters of diversity and inclusion within the civil engineering community, and implements strategies designed to foster equitable opportunity for full participation of all people within the civil engineering profession.
A graduate of Temple University and a Professional Engineer with 26 years of experience, Ms. Martsolf has utilized her technical expertise and career knowledge to create the Urban Training Institute and develop dynamic training programs. Under her leadership, the Institute quickly evolved into an award-winning and highly-respected institution. In 2008, Urban became an Accredited Provider with the International Association for Continuing Education and Training, and received the National Exemplar Award for Internal Training in 2010. The program has since evolved to become a dynamic business for Urban, offering professional development opportunities for the entire A/E/C community, who can now participate in the Institute’s classes from anywhere in the world through an online connection. Since its inception, the program is responsible for awarding more than 15,000 professional development hours to its participants.
