Conference on Advancing Transportation Equity: Bridging the Divide: Connecting People, Research, and Practice
September 8 - September 10
The Transportation Research Board of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, supported by the U.S. Department of Transportation, invites your participation in the first Conference on Advancing Transportation Equity (CATE) to be held September 8-10, 2021 in Washington, D.C. We welcome contributions from all areas of transportation practice and research, including those that address links between transportation and housing, telecommunications, health, policing, or economic development. We are also interested in receiving submissions from those working on the front lines of transportation equity and justice within community-based and non-profit organizations. Participants will represent a wide range of lived and professional experiences and discuss how diverse perspectives are included in policy development, project selection, and mitigation to advance transportation equity.
CATE will offer an agenda for participants to attend traditional panel and technical sessions. The conference will include sessions using accepted submissions from this Call for Abstracts that are socially interactive, engaging, and enable creative learning and sharing opportunities. It will also include virtual participation opportunities for presenters and attendees.
