2020 COP: How DOTs Can Advance Antiracism and Equity

November 5, 2020

2 p.m. – 4 p.m.

Last year’s community of practice meeting focused on law enforcement – specifically how facility design and automated enforcement could reduce bias in transportation-related policing. Events of 2020 have only served to underscore how critically antiracist policy is needed. This session explores ways DOTs can go beyond conventional practice to advance equity in the communities they serve and within their own organizations. We will begin with presentations from:

  • Keith Benjamin, Director, Charleston (S.C.) Department of Traffic and Transportation
  • Earl Key, Director, Office of Equal Opportunity, WSDOT
