Bus Electrification: The Role Agencies Can Play in Workforce Equity
April 13, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 2:45 pm EDT
April 13, 2021 2:00 pm to 2:45 pm ET
Transit agencies around the country have been exploring ways to transition to zero-emission bus fleets, and that exploration is poised to accelerate given President Biden’s aggressive goals on climate and clean energy policy. Fleet electrification raises a range of significant questions for transit agency workers, but an additional facet that is often less discussed is the important role that agencies play in the American workforce landscape through the procurement process. In this webinar, we’ll look at the interconnected issues of procurement, manufacturing, job creation, and job equity, and the opportunities for creating strong procurement policies as America builds back better in the years to come.
