Please join ITE Met Section for a panel discussion on public, private, and academic careers in transportation, with a focus on professionals who have transferred between these three sectors. We will be discussing how our four panelists have navigated job changes and career transitions to rise as leaders and visionaries in the transportation field.
Our four panelists include Janet Jenkins of the New York City Department of Transportation, Douglas Das of the New York State Department of Transportation, Brad Miller of the consulting firm Michael Baker International, and Joseph Chow, professor at New York University. The panel will be moderated by Lu Ding of the New Jersey Turnpike Authority, a former president of ITE Met Section in 2020.
