In these times of rapid and unprecedented change, the critical need for urgent action in advancing greater workforce diversity and development, innovation and continuous learning, and “people-readiness” at all levels has risen to new levels. Climate change, growing inequality, increasing digitalization, new players and business models highlight the critical role of transportation careers in community-building and achieving equity-centered and sustainable outcomes. TRB will host the third webinar in this series on Wednesday, March 22, 2023 from 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM Eastern that will spotlight the development of policies and practices that more fully address inequities and injustices caused and contributed to by transportation. Presenters will share how cross-sector integration can improve access to goods, services, and opportunities in communities. Presenters will also discuss the importance of diverse and authentic community participation in driving more equitable policies, programs, practices, and outcomes.  

The first webinar in this series, The Future Transportation Workforce is Happening Now!, will be held on Wednesday, February 8, 2023. The second webinar in this series, Sustainable Mobility: New and Expanding Opportunities, will be held on Wednesday, February 22, 2023.
