ABAG has special events that we hold throughout the year.

Whether it be a program forum, a ribbon cutting ceremony for a new Bay Trail addition, our next General Assembly, or highlighting a special award — it will be noticed here.

Metro Talks: Advancing Gender Equity in Transportation

Date: Thursday, October 1, 2020 at 4:00 p.m.
Where: Register for free; watch online via Youtube or Facebook

The Metro Talks Equity Series considers how we go about rebuilding a better Bay Area in the wake of the COVID-19 health and economic crisis, lifting up equity as the core value that illuminates our shared goals as we consider how best to restore our region.

BIPOC women, girls, transgender and gender non-conforming people are facing disproportionate burdens from the COVID-19 pandemic. We will explore how the Bay Area might emerge from this crisis with a transportation system that is more welcoming to women and girls, and what the transit sector can do to support riders, and provide career pathways with elevated economic opportunities. Join us for a conversation on what a safe and equitable transit system accessible for women and girls can look like in the Bay Area. Featuring:

  • Haleema Bharoocha: Advocacy Manager at Alliance for Girls
  • Mydria Clark: Toll Technology Analyst at HNTB
  • Salaam Lateef: Student, Black Girls Brilliance Youth Leader
  • Geovanna Veloz: Youth Researcher, Alliance for Girls; Mission High class of 2020; Freshman at University of California Merced
  • Therese McMillan (moderator): Executive Director, MTC-ABAG

Join us for a 60-minute session, split between a panel discussion and live Q&A with audience members.
