Friday Transportation Seminar: Curating Equitable Transportation

November 13 @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm UTC-5

THE TOPIC

Getting people and goods from here to there is central to the ways we live, work, and play in the United States. The transportation networks we create as planners, engineers, geologists, contractors, consultants, advocates, and citizens involve a multitude of decisions. These decisions have great impact on who can get where, when and how; often connected to our structures of social power. This seminar connects those dots, questions our ability to make change, and calls participants to be actively involved in a transportation system that is curated for those it targets: everyone.

KEY LEARNING OUTCOMES

  • Connect transportation experience to identity and social constructs
  • Understand how more equitable decisions can be made
  • Describe the ways transportation network professionals are curators of equity
