Join us for LIT’s Inaugural Leadership Summit and hear from the nation’s top Latino transit leaders. This event is perfect for middle managers ready to move to the next level in their careers. This one day event will provide information and networking opportunities with top transit professionals.
Latino transit professionals are joining the industry in record numbers, yet Latinos make up the smallest number of executive leadership. The purpose of the LIT Leadership Summit is to provide a forum for Latino transportation leaders to share best practices and help prepare Latinos In Transit for the next level. The Leadership Summit is deigned for both learning and networking opportunities.
