Best Practices for Incorporating Equity into Performance-based Processes

Recent events have further highlighted the systemic inequities built into American society, and our transportation infrastructure is no exception. People of color consistently experience worse mobility outcomes than white people, with longer and more difficult trips to access employment and other critical needs. These barriers have a major impact on economic stability and wealth accrual. To rectify these problems, the transportation sector needs to integrate equity into its methods for allocating resources. This webinar will highlight research published in a recent American Planning Association Planning Advisory Services Memo on using equity-oriented performance measures in transportation planning, documenting current methods in practice, and suggesting approaches for improvement.
