The summit is held in Portland, in the heart of the Pacific Northwest, where you’ll find these innovations in sustainable transportation not just in theory but on the ground in our communities.

Keynote: Hannah Ubl

Research Director at BridgeWorks

We're pleased to welcome researcher, writer and generational expert Hannah Ubl as our keynote speaker. Her keynote presentation at the summit will address the challenges and opportunities of a transportation workforce that spans multiple generations, how to recruit and retain millennial talent, and how to motivate and communicate across generations to help the transportation industry thrive and create vibrant communities and workforces for the future.

BridgeWorks has been dedicated solely to the study of generational differences since its inception in 1998. Ubl heads up BridgeWorks’ research initiatives, including delving into the latest trends on Generation Edge, the generation after Millennials. She is the author of "Managing Millenials for Dummies."
