Career Development Programs for Public and Private Sectors

  • Wednesday, September 29 | 2:30-3:30 p.m. CDT
  • Presenters:
    • Joshua Salazar, HDR
    • Jerome Brown, HDR
    • Javier Manso, P.E., HDR
    • Birgit Olkuch, P.E., Florida Department of Transportation
    • Steve Braun, P.E., Florida Department of Transportation

The session will highlight examples of proven development programs to advance leadership and expertise within an organization to attract, retain and train talent, as well as insights into development strategies for new programs. The panel will discuss parallels between different public and private sector professional development and leadership programs to share this insight with attendees. This will be a training opportunity for attendees towards their own development program strategies to consider initiating or improving in their organization. The return on investment of time and resources in these programs is to equip the next generation of leaders with the skills necessary to advance in their organization, and retain the body of knowledge to improve resiliency in the organization. These programs also have proven to be successful recruitment tools.
