Program Recap: Emerging Leaders in Transportation 2015
The NYU Rudin Center concluded our Emerging Leaders in Transportation program last week, wrapping up three weeks of seminars with industry leaders and behind-the-scenes tours of local transportation facilities.
Program participants explored innovation and leadership in the context of their careers and engaged in intense discussions about essential skills, managing politics and promoting their ideas.
This year's speakers:
- Dan Baer, Parsons Brinckerhoff
- William Carry, NYC Department of Transportation
- Malinda Foy, MTA Bridges & Tunnels
- Joan McDonald, National Infrastructure Advisory Council
- Mary K Murphy, North Jersey Transportation Planning Authority
- Jon Orcutt, independent consultant
- John Raskin, Riders Alliance
The group visited the NYCT Rail Control Center and the Citi Bike Warehouse for inside perspectives on operations and challenges.
The program concluded with participants making two-minute pitches about innovations they would like to develop in their workplaces.
The 2015 Emerging Leaders in Transportation program was a major success. Thanks to the many transportation professionals who took the time participate as speakers, to the program alumni and guests who provided feedback on pitches, and to this year's fellows who brought their best ideas and enthusiasm.
