We are the builders of the infrastructure that allows our communities to thrive. We understand regulatory requirements, we are competent, innovative engineers who plan and incorporate climate change conditions into our designs, and we know what it takes to construct effective infrastructure. But do we truly understand how our projects affect economically underrepresented and socially excluded communities? For too long, these groups have historically been left out of the equation. Acknowledging and understanding how infrastructure impacts everyone within a community is necessary for sustaining environmental justice and truly resilient projects.

Our Federal, state, and regional agency representatives will share their experience advocating for and responding to the needs of underserved and vulnerable populations. A local community-based organization representative from Marin City People's Plan will offer her perspective on successful collaborative problem-solving for Equitable Infrastructure.

Join us for this luncheon panel discussion to learn from these Change Makers who are empowering communities with access and resources to drive social equity in infrastructure resiliency. Our Panel includes:
