The WiT Framework addresses these issues through five pillars education hiring and. entrepreneurship retention leadership and user access It pairs desired outcomes with. specific actions and metrics providing APEC economies and partners a menu of options. to increase women s inclusion, The APEC Transportation Ministers have acknowledged the importance of this initiative.
