ITE Joint Sections Diversity and Inclusion Webinar Series Session 4: Voices of Professional Societies

March 31
Noon-1:00 p.m. PT

ITE and many other professional societies experienced an elevated awareness of diversity and inclusion. Why doesn’t our membership and leadership reflect the demographics of the communities in which we work? Are the changes in this area going fast enough? What can ITE and transportation societies learn from other groups focused in specific demographic sectors (COMTO, NSBE, SHPE, AISES, ICTPA, and others)? How could ITE collaborate more effectively with other partners in diversity? What are the most important steps that can be done to serve members in this topic space?

Moderator: Beverly Kuhn, ITE Vice President, Texas A&M Transportation Institute, Division Head

Panel:
Victoria Sheehan, AASHTO President, New Hampshire DOT Commissioner
Michele Yatchmeneff, AISES, University of Alaska at Anchorage, Assistant Professor of Civil Engineering
Victoria Gray, NSBE Professionals Region 6 Chair, Northrup Grumman, Systems Engineer
