Increasing Diversity in the Travel Analysis Field

Have you ever noticed the lack of people of color and women in the travel
analysis field? *Did you ever wonder what you could do to build a more
inclusive travel modeling workforce?* I had this very question after the
Transportation Planning Applications Conference this year, and I wrote a blog
post about it
.

To increase the diversity in our field, I’ve joined up with several
colleagues to develop the Zephyr Fellowship for Emerging Travel Analysis
.
The fellowship will create a community of future leaders coming from
underrepresented backgrounds and include personalized mentoring, technical-
and soft skill building.

*Are you interested in helping build this fellowship program? Please
contact me (SChildress@psrc.org <schildress@psrc.org>) and I’ll add you to
a list of potential collaborators.*

You might think you don’t have much to contribute, but you’d be *wrong *because
we need* all kinds of help* as far ranging as: note-taking and file
organization, research on effective strategies to increase diversity,
providing a wide variety of perspectives, grant application writing,
connections across industries, future mentors…

Hi TMIP organizer,
It looks like there were formatting problems with the post I sent. Could
you send another post as follows?:

I'm following up about a previous post that had a few formatting issues.
Specifically it was missing the link giving more information about the
fellowship to increase diversity.
