Program Recap: Emerging Leaders in Transportation 2016
Last week, the NYU Rudin Center concluded its second Emerging Leaders in Transportation program. This year's program consisted of two mornings of seminars with industry leaders, a behind-the-scenes tour of local transportation facilities and a networking reception with program alumni.
Program participants explored innovation and leadership within the context of their careers and engaged in discussion about how to build essential leadership skills, manage office politics, promote their ideas, and lead change within their respective companies. This year's themes included data analysis, autonomous vehicles, congestion management, sustainability and active transport.
This year’s speakers included:
