 Incorporating Equity in Transportation Research

The Greenlining Institute, sponsored by ITS Berkeley, will present the Incorporating Equity in Transportation Research Workshop on campus on Friday March 4, 2022 9:30 am - 12 pm. Registration required. Class size is limited and intended for ITS affiliated researchers. Priority will be given to ITS staff, postdocs, and faculty. Registration for students will open based on availability.


This workshop is a starting point to consider how to nurture engagement and collaboration with communities when designing and conducting transportation equity research. The goal is to consider ways to work with community organizations and members in co-developing research questions, proposing research designs, and using methods that will result in more impactful research and more meaningful collaborations. The workshop will provide a better understanding of both the hurdles and the rewards of working with community partners.
