In Public Works, we are responsible for providing services to everyone in our communities. When our infrastructure needs improvement, we often depend on customer complaints to inform us of impacts and use to prioritize projects. However, vulnerable populations did not always have a voice, and are disproportionately affected by failed or infrequently maintained infrastructure. There are many reasons why these populations are not reporting what they know. In the case of unreported impacts, they are falsely assumed to be non-existent, so the solutions do not receive a priority and funding. This program provides strategies for using data, outreach and augmenting prioritization criteria to better incorporate social equity into investments, decision-making, and balanced outcomes. Webinar, 10-11 AM Central time (11 AM - 12 PM Eastern, 9-10 AM Mountain, 8-9 AM Pacific)
