In celebration of Women’s History Month, join the Mineta Transportation Institute (MTI) and the Conference of Minority Transportation Officials (COMTO) for a conversation with a diverse panel of women transportation leaders representing academia, public and private industries, and the nonprofit sectors as they share personal stories from their careers and lessons learned as they rose to the top. 

Moderated by April Rai, CEO of COMTO and a member of the MTI Board of Trustees, this webinar delves into a critical issue faced by the transportation industry: How are we prioritizing women and other traditionally underrepresented voices to build the most inclusive and effective transportation workforce for our future?
