Description

Webinar
July 27, 1 pm PDT (4 pm EDT)

Transportation infrastructure and services are often assumed to be "gender neutral", where projects and services are assumed to provide an equal benefit to men and women, and where there is no significant difference in travel patterns, modes of access, or participation in project planning, design and maintenance. In fact, when transportation data is disagreggated by gender, what becomes visible is how transportation policies affect women and men differently. In this webinar, SFU's Tiffany Muller Myrdahl will explain the use of disaggregated data to highlight gendered transportation patterns and discuss how gendered experience shapes transit use. Most importantly, this webinar will focus on what transportation planners and decision makers need to know to develop policies that improve equity in access and provision of services. Join us on July 27 to learn more.

Speaker: Tiffany Muller Myrdahl, Senior Lecturer in Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies and Urban Studies, SFU

Moderator: Tara Gallen, City of Vancouver
