The Mineta Leadership Academy is devoted to developing exceptional public sector leaders to serve the transportation industry. The Academy provides individuals in mid-level to senior management positions with opportunities to improve leadership skills, enhance their leadership competencies, and work with peers and mentors in the transportation industry. Following the example of our founder and namesake U.S. Department of Transportation Secretary, Norman Y. Mineta, the Academy cultivates leadership excellence in a diverse group of professionals who are committed to building and maintaining a world-class transportation system in an environment that is constantly changing.
MTI is pleased to launch the Mineta Leadership Fellows Program video series which features influential leaders in the transportation sector discussing their leadership styles and how they have successfully built strong, inclusive teams. Our distinguished leaders also provide insight into the challenges they have experienced and the techniques they have learned to build consensus, shared values, and a vision for the future.
