Who we are

ITS Australia NextGens is a group dedicated to young and early-career transport professionals established and supported by ITS Australia in January 2021. The ITS Australia NextGens aim to connect and provide opportunities for young professionals by promoting knowledge sharing and networking between future leaders and contributors to the ITS space.

Our mission

  • To spearhead the profile and value of young professionals in the ITS industry
  • To provide a united voice as an advocate for the interests of young professionals
  • Nurture, inspire, and develop leaders and contributors to the ITS space

Our structure

  • NextGens Network: We are a community of like-minded individuals eager to step up. As early career transport professionals, we are united by a mission to grow and support each other through the NextGens community and ITS Australia.
  • NextGens Committee: The NextGens committee meets regularly to set the strategic direction of NextGens, as well as to help organise events and initiatives for the benefit of the NextGens network.
  • NextGens Co-Chairs: The Committee elects Co-Chairs who represent NextGens through ITS Australia’s Membership Committee and Board. The Co-Chairs work with committee members to organise NextGens events and activities.

Become a NextGens sponsor

NextGens is reliant on the generosity of partner organisations who support our professional development, knowledge sharing and mentoring activities. Organisations are invited to sponsor events (an excellent branding opportunity) and host site visits to gain access to Australia’s next generation of ITS professionals.

Sponsorship is an excellent opportunity for organisations to raise their profiles as well as to showcase their support for young people. Organisations are also able to promote their own graduate programs and internships through the NextGens network.

If you are interested in supporting Australia’s next generation of young transport professionals through involvement with NextGens, please contact us here.

This award is proudly sponsored by ITS Australia, and provides sponsorship for the recipient to attend the following year's ITS Asia Pacific Forum.
