The Mineta Leadership Academy provides individuals in mid-level to senior management positions with opportunities to improve leadership skills and enhance their leadership competencies. The Mineta Transportation Institute offers courses, taught by industry leaders, that prepare today’s public sector leaders to face a plethora of challenges that include rapidly changing technology, cybersecurity, public-private partnerships, funding constraints and more, all of which require new skills and competencies to be successful.
In 2020, MTI also launched the Mineta Leadership Fellows Program. This program, under the guidance of Patrick Sherry, PhD, Director of the MTI Leadership Academy, showcases influential leaders in transportation discussing their leadership philosophies, the challenges they have faced and how they have successfully built strong, inclusive teams by achieving consensus based on shared values and a vision for the future. This collection provides students and professionals with enlightening insights, new perspectives, and practical suggestions for enhancing their effectiveness as leaders.
