This interactive workshop will provide an introduction to the roles, challenges, responsibilities and opportunities for NACTO City leaders to advance racial equity within their agency and/or organization. This workshop is geared towards city leaders who have a foundation of understanding about race, equity, and power, and are looking to build on that foundation and operationalize it in their work.
This workshop will include an overview of shared equity terms and definitions as well as transportation-based scenarios and racial equity analysis tools used to inform decisions relating to policies, processes, programs, projects and budgets. Participants will have an opportunity to work in small groups and apply the basic use of a racial equity tool on some of their own scenarios. Additionally, they will learn about existing resources and networks available for their continued racial equity capacity building and development.
