A Panel Discussion

How to thrive as a minority in transportation’s executive ranks

Women remain a minority in the executive ranks at transportation agencies and organizations across the country, despite the emergence of several high-profile leaders and reformers in the past decade. This event – in collaboration with Women’s Transportation Seminar (WTS) – explores this disparity and discusses the trajectories, challenges, and strategies for success of women in the midst of careers to actively improve transportation.

Panelists include:

Kate Fillin-Yeh, Strategy Director, NACTO, New York, NY

Dani Simons, Director of Corporate Communications & External Affairs, Motivate, New York, NY

Monica Tibbits-Nutt, Executive Director, 128 Business Council; MassDOT & MBTA Board Member, Boston, MA

Shefali Ranganathan, Executive Director, Transportation Choices Coalition, Seattle, WA
