On March 28, 2023, C2SMART Center and NYU’s student chapter of ITE hosted the 5th Annual Women in Transportation Panel at the NYU Tandon School of Engineering. The panel featured three leaders in the transportation field:
- Haley Huston, Traffic Engineer at AKRF, Inc.
- Nadereh Moini, Chief of Transportation at NJ Sports & Exposition Authority
- Mira Philipson, Senior Accessibility Analyst at the MTA
Over 50 rising transportation professionals attended the hour-long panel discussion focused on gender equity in the workforce and throughout global transportation systems. The panelists shared insights about their experiences as women in a male-dominated field of work, including gender challenges in transportation, advice for overcoming those challenges, and tips for aspiring transportation engineers and planners.
Special thanks to the ITE Met Section and ITS-NY, especially Tom Pagano, Asheque Rahman, and Arthur O’Connor, for their support of the event. and continued work to create a more inclusive and diverse transportation industry.
