1:30 - 6:00p.m. (PT) | Link to register.

This year we are focusing the discussion around racial equity in the field of transportation planning. We hope that this event will allow attendees to gain a better understanding of some of the problems that minority communities face in transportation and mobility and some of the ways that these issues can be addressed through the planning process.

We are also happy to announce that this symposium will also feature a keynote address from Tamika Butler, who will kick off our discussion with a short presentation about their work in the field of transportation followed by a brief Q&A session.

Following the keynote speaker, we will then have a short discussion with our panel of experts which includes:

The panel will dive deeper into some of the issues, answer pre-written questions, and discuss how they are approaching these problems in their respective positions.

We hope that you can join us in this important discussion as the Bay Area and the City of San José undertake important transportation projects that will shape mobility in Silicon Valley for the foreseeable future.
