Please join WTS Sacramento and the Conference of Minority Transportation Officials for an evening of food, drinks, and fun to celebrate the appointment of Donna Berry as the Chief Engineer of the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans). Donna is responsible for all guidance, policy and other aspects needed to deliver Caltrans' transportation projects statewide. She manages six headquarters divisions and leads over 11,000 Project Delivery employees statewide responsible for delivering the annual Capital Improvement Project program valued at over $5 billion.
Donna joined Caltrans after graduating from UC Davis (Civil Engineering). Her twenty-five years of experience includes assignments in District Design and Project Management and Headquarters Structures Design. She served as Office Chief for the State Highway Operation and Protection Program (SHOPP), Chief Deputy for District 11, and most recently as the Division Chief for Project Management where she was responsible for the overall management of the delivery of capital projects.

Donna has been active in professional organizations since college, where she became a member of the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) and continues to work with NSBE to encourage students to pursue careers in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics). She is also a member of the Women in Transportation (WTS) Sacramento chapter where she was recognized as “Woman of the Year 2020” for her advocacy and support for women in leadership roles and her support for diversity and inclusion in the transportation profession.
