"If I hadn't had mentors, I wouldn't be here today. I'm a product of great mentoring, great coaching...Coaches or mentors are very important. They could be anyone--your husband, other family members, or your boss."   - Indra Nooyi, CEO of PepsiCo

IMG_0924 Mentoring is, perhaps, the greatest professional development tool a woman can use to advance her career. And the WTS-LA Mentorship Committee offers two exceptional mentoring programs to help our members' progress. These programs seek to meaningfully and effectively prepare entry-level and mid-career WTS-LA members by conveying to them the wisdom and experience of senior transportation leaders.

The Mentorship committee launched its new year-long WTS-LA Mid-Career Leadership Program (MCLP) in July 2016. Geared toward mid-career women eager to advance to higher levels of responsibility and leadership in the transportation industry, the WTS-LA MCLP targets women with 5-10 years of professional experience, as well as managers who wish to keep growing professionally. Each participant was matched with one of WTS-LA's directors at large, an illustrious group that includes executives from federal and regional transportation agencies and academic institutions. In addition to individual mentorship, the program includes a series of focused sessions designed to provide insights on essential management topics. 

In January 2018, the WTS-LA Mentoring Program will pair early-career WTS-LA members with established, senior industry professionals.
