Modern health, environmental, and social disruptions require transportation institutions to develop new skill sets for teams and preparations for extreme scenarios. TRB will host a webinar on Wednesday, February 15, 2023 from 1:30 PM to 3:00 PM Eastern that will share approaches to equip teams with new skill sets in decision-making and preparing for modern crisis scenarios. Panelists will share experiences with changes in network demand, environmental catastrophe, and insufficient human resources that resulted in significant changes to institutional mission, protocol, and external engagement.

This webinar is sponsored by TRB’s Standing Technical Committee on Strategic Management.

Registration is free for employees of TRB sponsors as well as Titanium and Cobalt Global Affiliates. The registration rate for all other attendees is $100. Sign into to view registration information.
