Members Only: Joshua Schank, Chief Innovation Officer, LA Metro

07:45 AM - 10:00 AM Central Standard Time


Q & A with 

Joshua Schank, Chief Innovation Officer, 

Los Angeles Metro


Friday, March 18 | 7:45am - 10:00am

Ordinary is never good enough. So, Metro created the Office of Extraordinary Innovation (OEI), "to create new ideas to improve mobility in LA County." Naturally, Metro needed an extraordinary transportation professional to lead that office and accomplish that task. Enter Dr. Joshua Schank. And on March 18, OEI Chief Innovation Officer Dr. Joshua Schank joins WTS-LA for a unique program where he will share his professional story and reveal how he got to where he is today...and what he sees for tomorrow.


Former president and CEO of the Eno Center for Transportation, former director of the National Transportation Policy Project, former transportation policy advisor to Senator Hillary Clinton (during SAFETEA-LU)-that is only the short list of Dr. Schank's accomplishments. There is much more, including a PhD and BA in urban planning from Columbia University and a Master of City Planning from MIT. And on March 18, WTS-LA members will sit down with Dr. Schank for a friendly Q&A format to learn how he navigated the transportation industry and what they can do to advance their own careers. This is professional development taken to a whole new level.


Join us on March 18 for a revolutionary program with one of the most innovative professionals in transportation today. And learn how you can bring that kind of innovation to your career. 


Please submit your questions here prior to the event.
