ALDOT recognizes the importance of proactively cultivating leaders to enhance the transportation profession. By establishing a formal leadership program, ALDOT seeks to provide program participants the skills, tools, and network to successfully navigate their careers and be leaders in their places of business, communities, and professional organizations of choice.
High-level leaders build and sustain great companies and organizations. Participants in the ALDOT Leadership Academy will learn critical leadership skills; use the program to apply those skills; and build diverse professional networks. Participants will gain valuable experience and will graduate with the professional capacity to be a high-level leader for their organization.
