Navigating Your Transportation Career

Panel Discussion

Please join us as we kick-off our 2023 programming with an engaging panel discussion surrounding equity, career paths, and achieving professional goals. Our five panelists are industry leaders who represent the public, private, and non-profit sectors. They will share their perspectives, advice, and professional journeys to help us reflect on ways to build stronger, more equitable, and inclusive professional communities, navigate career challenges, and achieve our personal career goals. 

This virtual event will be moderated by WTS-MN 2023 Programs Co-Directors, Karen Scheffing (MnDOT) and Erin Jordan (SEH).
