Together, we will explore how the Maryland Transit Administration (MTA), the Maryland Transportation Authority (MDTA), and industry firms are fostering diversity, promoting inclusivity, and empowering their teams to shape a brighter future for all.

Discover insights from industry leaders Kelly Fenner, Percy Dangerfield, and Janie Tiedeman as they dive into the crucial roles they play in driving transformation within their organizations, workforce, and projects to create a positive impact on the industry.

Moderator, Ree Miskimon, along with our panelists will discuss how they have embraced innovative leadership practices to enhance their respective agency operations. Special guest, Tony Bridges, MDOT’s Assistant Secretary for Transportation Equity & Engagement, will join the discussion!
