You’re invited to our next installment of our Engineering in Action series, which will bring together a panel of experts from L.A. to D.C. to discuss transportation equity. Discover how transportation planning and implementation impacts communities and the innovative solutions being developed to transform the cities of the 21st century.

This series was created in partnership with the UCLA Chapter of National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) to address societal challenges encountered in engineering disciplines through an interdisciplinary lens.

We hope you can join us for this exciting discussion of how society can move towards accessible, equitable, sustainable and affordable transportation for all.
