Better Engagement = Better Outcomes
November 1, 2022 | 3:30pm – 5:00pm ET
Recent times have seen welcome advances in outreach and engagement strategies, such as adopting more equitable approaches to engage the unengaged, involving community in decision-making and getting to implementation with better data and tools. Dive into examples and experience from a diversity of project and program settings. Hear about specific tactics, such as ridership ambassadors, collaborating with social justice providers, analyzing transit assets (e.g., bus stops) from the perspective of everyday users, and how community-based organizations can contribute to this work. Learn too how greater transparency through National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) documents can be part of a strong outreach and engagement process.
