201 Workshop: Building Racial & Social Equity Into Transportation Planning

The lasting impact of destructive urban policies and disinvestment is often the tale of two cities, in a single public realm. As jurisdictions across the country grapple with this legacy, it is critical for practitioners to institutionalize a racial equity lens in order to generate better outcomes on the ground.

This interactive workshop will provide the opportunity to move beyond the high-level planning and rhetoric of racial and social equity, to develop tools and techniques to transform analysis into action.

Using the CSI Racial Equity Toolkit, participants will engage in the active practice and development of strategies and techniques to integrate equity into everyday transportation planning. Through the use of role-playing exercises and small group work, we’ll collaborate on best practices for operationalizing equity internally, and practice techniques for fostering relationships with the communities we serve.

This workshop is provided, in part, by the Better Bike Share Partnership.
