Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Initiative

NADTC’s Diversity Initiative supports communities to help ensure that transportation services are both equitable and accessible.

The National Aging and Disability Transportation Center (NADTC) has embarked on a multi-pronged initiative to shine a light on transportation challenges that specifically impact diverse older adults, people with disabilities and caregivers. It encompasses racial, ethnic and cultural diversity and including Tribal elders and people with disabilities, new immigrant groups, those with Limited English Proficiency (LEP), and non-English speakers. NADTC’s transportation diversity, equity and inclusion initiative will include:

  • A national survey launched March 1, 2021.
  • Focus groups with riders and potential users of transportation services from across the U.S.
  • Conversations with transportation providers, human services organizations, advocates and community leaders

 

Register now to attend a Transportation Equity Stakeholder Meeting

NADTC will convene Virtual Transportation Equity Stakeholder Meetings on June 21 and June 23. The meeting on June 21st is targeted to urban and suburban areas and the meeting on June 23rd is for rural, tribal and frontier areas. These meetings will be conducted as open forums with opportunities for transportation stakeholders who provide and/or care passionately about community transportation for diverse older adults, people with disabilities and caregivers to share their perspectives and experiences. Public transit and human services transportation providers and other stakeholders, including aging, disability and diversity professionals and advocates, are invited.

The perspectives stakeholders bring to the table will enhance our understanding of the challenges involved in ensuring transportation equity for everyone and help us identify lessons learned from transportation equity efforts, including those that succeeded and those that did not.

Both meetings will follow the same agenda. Since attendance at these meetings is limited, we ask you to please register for only one meeting. Choose the meeting that best reflects your needs.
