As we reflect back on the unique and historical events of the past year, our December ITE Southern Alberta webinar will be focused on an exploration of how we, as a community, have become stronger through celebrating our differences, growing a culture of inclusion, and working to strengthen meaningful equity approaches as part of our transportation projects. We have assembled a talented and insightful group of panelists to help explore these topics through the lenses of women in transportation, anti-racism, and indigenous perspectives in the transportation and engineering communities.
