Gender Design in Transportation: What You Can Do Today and How It Will Help Everyone

Webinar Description:
Develop skills on inclusivity in transportation design. This webinar will share how focused engagement and staff training can lead to more informed transportation design that benefits the greater community. Three speakers will share urban and rural examples of how they’ve structured projects and their workplace to deliver both value-add and better design outcomes for emerging mobility issues. Topics draw from experience across North America including Denver, San Diego, Alberta and British Columbia, Canada to explore how cargo bikes, transit service and workforce are among the many factors helping communities work for everyone.

This webinar is part of the Women of ITE Information Crusade which is designed to connect members with research through monthly themes. The subcommittee goals are to make it easier to talk about gender inclusion, to find successes that can be replicated by ITE professionals in workplaces and in community design; and to provide mentoring and support for young women entering the profession.

Learning Objectives

  • Review case studies on projects that have applied a focus on gender and how this approach has helped promote inclusivity for all
  • Explore sensitivity training for transit planners and making planning assessments from a broad range of perspectives
  • Consider how one employer helps their clients prioritize inclusivity
