Organizers of this spring’s ACT Expo in Southern California have scheduled a Women in Alternative Clean Transportation Summit for the morning of Tuesday, May 6. The Women in ACT Summit will showcase female leaders who are shaping the future of clean transportation.

“Hear from women who lead the charge on public policy advancements and groundbreaking technology and infrastructure deployment projects,” says ACT organizer (and Fleets & Fuels publisher) GNA –Gladstein, Neandross & Associates.

Panelists will share the steps they took to shape their careers, how they have succeeded in the traditionally male-dominated transportation sector, and work-life balance tips.
