2020 Mentors and Graduates

The WTS Greater New York (GNY) Chapter Mentoring Program is a proven gold-standard 12-month program.  The program provides a forum for emerging women professionals in transportation seeking development of the skills necessary to achieve success in both their professional and personal lives. Benefits for mentors and protégés include networking, candid conversations and confidence building. Other benefits include hearing career success stories from women leaders and creating long-term relationships. The protégé and mentor one-on-one meetings afford unique access to industry leaders and their insight.

Feedback about the 2020 Program:

“Resilience, Confidence and Endurance are the three main takeaways from this year’s program. This program was my highlight of 2020, as WTS women grappled with the pandemic together and found a community.”

“Don’t ever feel like you to are too small, too unimportant, or too "low on the totem pole" to reach out. Thank you so much for all the women - mentors, mentees, guest speakers - who have given me motivation to speak up, ask questions, and be my own advocate!”

Calling Candidates!

In addition, the group meets monthly; these sessions include external speakers, exercises to identify strengths, develop strategies and fun social events.
