WTS SF - Empowering Women Author Series - Boots on the Ground, Flats in the Boardroom

05:00 PM - 07:30 PM Central Standard Time

THESE BOOTS WERE MADE FOR WALKING . . . AND TALKING Grace Crunican, BART General Manager, and Elizabeth Levin, consultant and former MassDOT/MBTA board co-authored “BOOTS on the GROUND, FLATS in the BOARDROOM”. They are excited to share their book and eager for WTS members and women in all positions to enjoy it.


Although targeted in the area of transportation, the human stories told transcend beyond the world of transportation and tell the stories of these 18 women pioneers who were indeed agents of change.

The evening will include the authors joined by a panel of bay area women transportation leaders telling their stories: Dr. Beverly Scott, Nuria Fernandez and Dana Hook.  Their careers evolved through personal growth, often difficult transitions, use of personal and professional networks, and evaluation of happiness along the way. They will share beginnings, career turning points, failures, successes and work/life balance.

A roundtable discussion follows the presentation, offering a casual and intimate environment for attendees to spend quality time with these remarkable women.  This event includes a copy of the book, dinner and networking, panel presentation and tabletop discussions for only $60 for WTS members and $75 for non-members.  Student prices are also available.

Dinner Hour & Networking | 5:00 – 6:00 PM

Panel & Tabletop Discussions | 6:00 – 7:30 PM
