*Update* Humphrey School Dean Nisha Botchwey will join as a reactor to the presentations!
Join the Minneapolis-St. Paul chapter of the Transportation Research Forum for a Brown Bag seminar to discuss gender considerations when designing a transportation system that is safe for all. Data collection related to race and income is common in transportation research. Gender and gender identity is an under researched yet critical aspect of the design of vehicles, infrastructure, and amenities. Join this webinar to scratch the surface of what is happening in this area. In this session, Alyssa Ryan, a transportation scholar at the University of Arizona, will share her research on gender’s relationship to automobile and roadway and safety, Eric Lind from MetroTransit will offer findings from Metro Transit’s operator and passenger research, and Jordan Kocak from Hennepin County will discuss a bicycle passing study and the County’s approach to creating safer bike infrastructure. Humphrey School Dean Nisha Botchwey will provide reaction and commentary at the end.
Frank Douma will moderate the panel and Deborah Carter McCoy will welcome attendees and introduce the event.
