How can the transportation industry approach issues of diversity and accessibility in the workforce, in transit riders, and in the community? How can we overcome historic and current injustices both by taking action now and by laying the groundwork for further transformation down the road? By shifting from broader conversations on equity to timely, focused discussions and hands-on planning, our industry can begin to understand and address the needs of community members of all ages, races, genders, and abilities. This Black History Month, join MTI and a panel of experts to discuss transforming racial inequity in the transportation industry. Reflect on some of the most pressing issues of equity in our nation and industry today and contribute to the discussion about how to address these issues.

1 AICP credit will be available for attendees.
