The Emerging Leaders in Transportation fellowship program aims to make transportation more efficient, effective and people-oriented through its stellar early-career employees.
In this competitive fellowship program, participants will learn from top transportation and management professionals to enhance leadership skills, communication techniques and policy work to bring innovative ideas into practice. During three half-day sessions, emerging leaders will build long-term leadership goals and will focus on developing innovative projects and ideas within an organization. Two additional sessions will include behind-the-scenes visits to major transportation facilities for hands-on learning about industry goals and challenges.
The program will take place over five half-days: October 21, 23, 28, 30 and November 4, subject to change slightly.
Session topics will include: leadership, innovation, communications, building support for innovation, practical applications.
Sessions will include talks from and with esteemed professionals and group discussions and exercises. Participants will be expected to complete assignments between sessions, and by the program’s conclusion, should have a plan to introduce an innovative solution or concept within their workplaces.
