How do you work to advance equity in transportation?
What do you do to improve how the transportation system meets the needs of people who face access and mobility constraints? Scholarships are prioritized for those advancing equity in transportation as part of their compensated or uncompensated work.
How will attending the symposium help you professionally?
Please include 200 to 400 words to ensure the selection committee has adequate information to make a decision.
Have you previously attended the UCLA Lake Arrowhead Symposium?
How might your lived experience inform the perspectives you bring to this collaborative learning environment?
The Arrowhead Symposium had historically been attended by those with access to and status in political and academic power structures, which has skewed older, whiter, and toward those with greater levels of career and income security than the whole of those who work in transportation, land use, and the environment. Over the past 5 years, the Arrowhead Steering Committee has sought to increase diversity at the Symposium by increasing the participation of those who are early in their careers, those who work in advocacy and community organizing, people of color, those who identify as LGBTQ+, and others who have been marginalized from access to power.
