Center’s Kenyon Corbett Graduates from APTA’s Emerging Leaders Program
Posted December 2020
On Friday, November 20, Center Program Associate, Kenyon Corbett, graduated from APTA’s Emerging Leaders program. The Class of 2020’s program had its kickoff sessions at the APTA Rail Conference in Toronto in June, 2019; the year-long program was extended by six months to make up for lost in-person time due to the pandemic. Graduation programing was delivered remotely over the course of a week and included a number of interactive sessions led by influential leaders from all over the transit industry.
The Emerging Leaders Program provides public transportation professionals with the skills, knowledge, and networks needed for advancement. Participants interact with areas of the industry beyond their specialization; engage in in-depth research; receive mentoring from national and local leaders; hone their speaking and leadership skills; and make life-long connections with classmates who are on their way to becoming the next generation of transit leaders.
Kenyon’s area of focus at the Center is on frontline workforce development; in particular, he works with transit agencies to help develop registered apprenticeship programs for several maintenance occupations as well as for bus operators. A video of a presentation Corbett made as a part of the Emerging Leaders Program discussing the bus operator apprenticeship can be seen here: https://vimeo.com/395760681 .
