Centering and Understanding Equity in Projects and Design, Session Three

Sessions 1 and 2 focused on the various dimensions and implications of equity as well as the organizational shifts needed to center racial equity in all aspects of planning, design, and transportation decision-making. This session will build on the previous sessions by focusing on the individual—particularly one’s personal and professional obligation—to create safe, equitable, and inclusive systems for all. In addition to receiving feedback from a survey on what prevents well-meaning planners and engineers from being more vocal in favor of racial equity, participants will also hear first hand testimonies from leading transportation experts of how they made the internal shift to focus and center equity in their work. The session will conclude with a new segment, “Letters to Our Younger Selves.”
