APPLICATIONS ARE NO LONGER BEING ACCEPTED
After a successful launch of the LIT Leadership Academy in 2022, LIT is proud and excited to once again offer the Leadership Academy Program in 2023. The Leadership Academy is career development training curated and facilitated by transportation industry leaders.
The LIT Leadership Academy consists of four virtual training and development program areas:
Making of An Executive
Leading in Middle Management
New Careers in Transit
Transit Board Leadership
Thirty-five Leadership Academy participants will gain an in depth understanding of public transportation and learn about management practices, finance, procurement, labor relations and regulatory compliance. Each of the area consists of five modules. There will be one module held each month (3.5 hours) for a period of five months starting in March 2023. The modules will be taught virtually by industry leaders. There will be a team project and presentation required to graduate from the Academy.
