ITE Greater Vancouver: ITE & PIBC Mixer – How Can Transportation Engineers and Planners Move Equity From Rhetoric to Reality?

April 17@5:30 pm to 8:00 pm PDT

$20.00 – $40.00

Join us for a presentation by Tessa Williams (RPP, MSc) to learn more about the new report “Practices and inspiration for sustainable transportation equity: Case studies from Canadian cities.” Following the presentation there will be an opportunity for networking and discussion with fellow engineers and planners.

Nearly 1 million Canadians live in transportation poverty, where their ability to access opportunities is limited by inadequate, unsafe, or unaffordable transportation options. City builders are recognizing that the way transportation has been planned, designed, and delivered is unfair and needs to change. The big question facing the transportation community is no longer whether to take action towards equity, but how. The Report, created by a team of transportation practitioners, equity experts, and researchers from across Canada, the report shares promising practices to apply equity throughout the project life cycle, from policy and strategy to learning and evaluation. The report has been featured by the Transportation Association of Canada (TAC), Canadian Institute of Planners (CIP), and Canadian Association of Road Safety Professionals (CARSP).

Tessa is transportation planner with Urban Systems with over four years of experience across three different provinces. She leverages her unique background in local government and research to contribute to active transportation, land use, transit, parking, and equity projects. Tessa served as research lead for the PISTE project, with the goal of developing a report by and for transportation practitioners.
