The WTS New Jersey mentoring program provides a forum for women in transportation seeking development of the skills necessary to achieve success in both their professional and personal lives. The program offers support from experienced mentors as well as peer networking and candid conversations with successful transportation leaders in New Jersey. Benefits for the mentor include sharing career success stories with future women leaders, building long-term relationships and giving back to an industry that needs to hear and remember these stories. Mentees gain the knowledge and wisdom of the women pioneers who blazed the path before them. WTS also offers a variety of networking events with other mentor teams.
