Mentorship Program


The 2019 Jane Morris Mentorship program wrapped up October 29th. This year’s program had twenty-three participants and included speakers such Doug Pruitt - former Sundt Construction CEO, KellyAnne Gallagher - founder of the Commuter Rail coalition, Maria Hyatt - Gannett Fleming Transit Planner/Friends of Transit Chair, Audra Koester Thomas - Maricopa Association of Governments Planning Program Manager and Traci Ruth from Maricopa County Department of Transportation. Session topics ranged from negotiating tactics, the changing multi-modal landscape, values mapping, and community engagement methods.


WTS is very grateful to the many speakers, volunteers, and supporters of this year’s program. We were fortunate to have great participants and several future industry rock stars and WTS leaders in the our midst. While we’re sorry to see the 2019 program come to an end, we’re very excited to begin planning for 2020. We’re already busy evolving next year’s program to incorporate a half-day retreat kick-off, study material to enhance professional/personal improvement exercises, onsite “field trips” with transportation leaders, and plenty of networking opportunities.


The new program will be presented at the January 2020 Annual Business Meeting, applications will be accepted through February, and the program will kick-off in March.
