Join WTS Northern Utah for an Interactive Question and-Answer Session with Janette Sadik-Khan

Please join us for this unique opportunity to hear from this influential leader in the transportation industry. Learn about Janette Sadik-Khan’s career path, her thoughts on women in leadership roles, and how she made her voice heard in the transportation arena.

In her six-year tenure as Commissioner of the New York City Department of Transportation, Janette Sadik-Khan made a lot of changes. She focused on reducing the number of cars on NYC streets, built hundreds of miles of bike lanes, introduced a hugely successful bike share program, created pedestrian plazas, and transformed Times Square.

Her goal was to make it easier and safer to get around in New York, and to make the city a better place for residents and businesses.

Ms. Sadik-Khan was also responsible for managing a $2 billion annual budget and 4,700 employees. She was in charge of maintaining and improving 6,300 miles of road, nearly 800 bridges, 12,000 intersections with traffic signals, and the Staten Island Ferry. She faced implementation challenges for things like audible cross walk signals to help the blind and taking away parking spaces to make room for Citi Bike stations. Through her hard work and perseverance, the changes were made.
