Allie Kelly, executive director of The Ray, a non-profit organization which is the nation’s only publicly accessible, living laboratory for transportation innovation, has been announced as a featured speaker for the 2019 WTS Conference in Boston, May 15-17, 2019. With a vision to achieve equity and access for women in the transportation industry, WTS generates high-caliber professional opportunities for members through events and activities, networking opportunities, and unparalleled access to industry and government leaders.
Inspired by Ray Anderson, who committed in the 1990s to shape business practices with a sustainable lens, The Ray is a proving ground for evolving ideas and technologies that can transform the transportation infrastructure of the future. It starts on 18 miles of west Georgia’s I-85 and the land and communities surrounding it.
As the leader of The Ray, Kelly is at the forefront of emerging trends in the transportation industry. We conducted a really fun interview recently with her.
