GoToWebinar: This webinar, organised by CIHT West Midlands, will look at inclusive design and perspectives on how we can try to understand the underlying processes that impact the way people travel.
It all started with a conversation between two transport planners – one who identifies as LGBT+, the other a behavioural research specialist – who realised they both experienced situations where our own personal safety and comfort was compromised on public transport.
Over the last 6 months, we have been conducting research to better understand the experiences of LGBT+ public transport users – in part driven by a lack of data on the subject. We are aware that hate crime is a key barrier to LGBT+ on public transport, however, to design an inclusive transport system we really need to situate ourselves in the eyes of the user and try to understand the underlying processes that impact the way people travel.
In this session, Richard and Lindsey present the findings from their research and offer new perspectives to ensure everyone can access opportunities through the schemes we design.
All transport professionals or those with a keen interest in inclusive design. We are looking to engage with delegates across transport planning and other related professions. This event would also be of interest to those who wish to increase their knowledge of EDI issues.
