WTS International began its Mid-Career Leadership Program, ’Leadership for the 21st Century,’ in 2000. This is one of WTS International's premier leadership development opportunities. The program has been expanded to include the Executive Leader Program, the first of its kind for the transportation industry. Both programs have been created by an expert team of professionals and is geared toward women with promise for higher levels of responsibility and leadership. These programs are opportunities for WTS to contribute to the professional development of women who have demonstrated the interest and potential to enhance their leadership skills and advance within the industry. 

The 2018 Leadership Programs are at full capacity.
