Investments Underscore the Impact Diversity and Government Relations
Have on Business

MIAMI–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Ryder
System, Inc
. (NYSE: R) has granted $30,000 to Florida International
University (FIU) in support of two of the university’s educational
programs in Washington, D.C. One of the grants, the Ryder Women in
Leadership Scholarship, was given in the amount of $15,000 to increase
access of promising female leaders to advanced educational opportunities
and leadership development. The second grant, the Ryder-FIU in D.C.
Transportation & Logistics BizGov intern program, was given in the
amount of $15,000 to fund a promising FIU undergraduate or graduate
student with interest in transportation and logistics, to gain both a
federal and corporate internship experience.

Ryder
Charitable Foundation
, the charitable giving arm for Ryder, supports
non-profit organizations with projects and causes that align with the
Company’s core values – expertise, innovation, safety, and community
collaboration.

“Ryder is proud to support FIU and to empower opportunities for both
high potential women and diverse students to access executive education
and learn more about the technological advances and growth of the
transportation and logistics industry,” said Robert Sanchez, Ryder
Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.

The Ryder Women in Leadership Scholarship made it possible for 10 women,
both students and promising alumni, who are aspiring to leadership
positions, to attend a two-day education course recently held in D.C. in
partnership with the Organization of American States. The course, titled
Cyber Security Strategy and Leadership, featured some of the nation’s
top cyber security experts. Those who were selected for the opportunity
have expressed interested in building careers in the areas of: business,
management, technology, logistics, transportation, supply chain
management, data analytics, health care management, human resources
management, real estate, or STEM fields.

The student selected for the Ryder-FIU in D.C. Transportation &
Logistics BizGov internship opportunity will be provided the chance to
gain both federal and corporate internship experience by working at
FIU’s Washington, D.C. office during the summer of 2017. He or she will
gain knowledge of Congress, the federal government, policymaking, and
national trends in the industry. The intern will attend transportation
hearings, national association events, and actively contribute to the
area of transportation and infrastructure. Following their D.C. summer
experience, the student, having benefited from the federal lens gained
while interning at the nation’s capital, will work as a Ryder-funded,
paid intern at the Company’s corporate headquarters in Miami, where they
will gain hands-on experience in the industry. FIU in Washington, D.C.
provides a competitive advantage to FIU students, faculty, alumni and
staff; access to thought leaders, one-of-a-kind learning, career, and
research experiences; and amplifies FIU’s voice in the national dialogue.

“We are proud of our long-standing relationship with Ryder, which has
generously supported our university and many of our top graduates who
hold leadership positions with the company,” said Mark B. Rosenberg, FIU
President. “This investment will build on these successes and ensure
that women will continue to excel in business and STEM fields.”
