3 Virtual Opportunities to Hear Jacobs Talk Cultural Shifts, Achieving Equitability and Leadership
With a pivot from the traditional Women’s Transportation Seminar (WTS) annual conference to a virtual learning series, Jacobs leaders are sharing messages about Women! Take the Lead and Equitable Transportation Benefits Everyone.
As part of the Women’s Transportation Seminar (WTS) Online Learning 2020 Webinar Series, Jacobs leaders are participating in two important tracks: Women! Take the Lead and Equitable Transportation Benefits Everyone.
“Like nearly every conference planned for 2020, we are shifting from planned, in-person presentations to virtual sessions, but the importance of our messages doesn’t change,” reports Jacobs People & Places Solutions Vice President Judy Johnson. “I am proud to be moderating a panel of four female leaders to discuss the ways every individual can empower women and promote gender equality.”
Judy will be moderating the session titled Accelerating a Cultural Shift, featuring Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s (Metro) Chief Policy Officer Elba Higueros, Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA) Director of Planning and Programming Deborah Dagang, Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) Executive Director Therese McMillan and Jacobs Chief Strategy & Communications Officer Marietta Hannigan. The panel is scheduled for October 7 at 1pm EST.
Presentations scheduled for October 14 at 1pm EST feature opportunities to hear two Jacobs speakers. Jacobs People & Places Solutions Global Solutions Lead for Transportation Policy and Performance Mara Campbell will be a panelist for Shifting Gears - Applying Integrated Management to Achieve Equitability. As part of the Equitable Transportation Benefits Everyone series track, the panel will provide insights on what performance, asset, and risk management is, how they differ, and how they intersect in a strategic manner.
In addition, Jacobs People & Places Solutions Client Account Partner Jasmine Narcisse will moderate a panel on Intersectionality and Leadership, as part of the Women! Take the Lead track with clients from LA Metro, City of Phoenix, DelDOT, and PHL Airport. This interactive session will explore both the values and the hurdles of intersectionality as it relates to leadership and explore the ways we can all better support one another.
“Supporting WTS is so natural for Jacobs,” explains Jacobs New England Highway Bridge Market Sector Lead and WTS International Board of Director Member at Large Rebecca Williamson. “The WTS vision - equity and access for women in transportation – aligns so well with our focus on inclusion and role in the global transportation market.”
