At its core, inequality exists when there are fundamental differences in access to opportunity. Taking the first steps to address it can be difficult and fraught, with a need to recognize power and fully acknowledge its reality and consequences. In this presentation, learn about developing and implementing a comprehensive agency equity framework based on LA Metro’s Equity Platform. From this discussion, we hope to convey a blueprint for incorporating equity into your own agency’s work as we all work as transportation professionals to undo decades of barriers to mobility. Let’s not just talk about equity – let’s define and address it.
- Assess how equity concerns should be identified at an agency wide level.
- Develop a framework for addressing those concerns.
- Anticipate resources and other considerations for implementing change to better achieve equity.
