The conference theme is Progress and Possibilities: Bridging Perspectives. It highlights how far recognition of gendered issues in transport have come, while also noting the important work ahead to bridge inequities. This will work require spanning disciplines, departments, scales, and organizations.
The Call for Abstracts - Presentations, Panel Sessions, and Non-traditional Submissions closes February 21, 2024.
Join us in sharing research and practical applications that highlight how gender considerations can be incorporated into the traditionally male dominated transport sector, a sector that is a contributor to economic growth, broadens access to health, education services, and employment, and more. The conference theme—Progress and Possibilities: Bridging Perspectives—highlights how far recognition of gendered issues in transport have come, while also noting the important work ahead to bridge inequities, work that will require spanning disciplines, departments, scales, and organizations. We are seeking individual presentations as well as pre-organized panels of three or four presentations on a particular theme, workshops, and roundtables. Abstracts may present original research, practical experiences, case studies, and/or solutions to policy concerns. We will accept presentations of work that has been published recently or is currently under consideration for publication. We are looking for presentations related to any mode or modes and infrastructure: aviation, roadways, active transportation, airports, transit, freight, rail, water, and space. We welcome submissions from countries of all levels of income.
The committee hopes to organize a Women and Gender in Transport Special Collection for publication in Transportation Research Record: The Journal of the Transportation Research Board following the conference. Stay tuned for more details.
