Mid-Career Advancement Counseling Initiative

The goal of the mid-career advancement counseling initiative is to provide guidance and support in advancing women in the transportation industry.  To achieve this goal, we will pair selected mid-level career professionals (MLPs) with members and/or partners of the WTS Philadelphia Executive Women's Roundtable (EWR) according to the MLP's career objectives.  The pairw ill meet for 2-3 one-on-one sessions focused on how the MLP can best prepare herself for the new move in her career.  Confidentiality is a priority in this program.


  • Exclusively for WTS Philadelphia members in good standing
  • For women who are mid-level managers/professionals in technical and/or non-technical roles in the transportation industry (typically 7-20 years of experience, but varies)


  • For entry level/junior staff
  • A long-term mentorship program (if interested in this type of relationship, please look into our chapter's official Mentorship Program instead)
  • A promise of an offer/guarantee of alternative employment/headhunting initiative


  • Complete and return attached application
  • Once received, your application will be confidentially reviewed by a small team (reviewed on a rolling basis)
  • If selected, we will begin to pair you with an executive [2-3 weeks]
  • Once paired and introduced to one another, you will be assisted in setting up your first meeting time
  • After the first session, it is your and your assigned executive's responsibility to work together to schedule and plan how you would like to shape your remaining 1-2 sessions
  • Complete close-out survey

TIP: The more thorough your application, the better we can pair you and the more ground you can cover in your 2-3 sessions with your designated executive.
