Webinar: Partnering with Historically Underserved Communities in Transportation Planning

DATE: June 10, 2021

TIME: 10:00 AM to 11:30 AM


EVENT OVERVIEW: This webinar will provide transportation professionals with recommendations and best practices in partnering in transportation planning with historically underserved communities. Transportation agencies are seeking more dynamic ways of engaging with historically underserved communities in planning processes. This webinar will present ten key practices for successful engagement with historically underserved communities. These practices were identified through a study of four successful community engagement processes in California centered on transportation. Each process involved robust planning with the community, which resulted in outcomes that better met community needs. This webinar will be of interest to professionals and researchers wishing to rethink the role of community expertise in planning and growing their commitment to transportation equity.
