Therese McMillan will present on developing and implementing a comprehensive equity framework based on LA Metro’s Equity Platform and will share a blueprint for incorporating equity into your own work. Join us to see how transportation is an essential lever to enable access to opportunity and understand the performance metric considerations for measuring success.

McMillan, now the Executive Director of the Metropolitan Transportation Commission in San Francisco, was appointed by former President Barack Obama to serve as Deputy Administrator of the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) in the U.S. Department of Transportation in 2009. She subsequently served as Acting FTA Administrator before becoming LA Metro’s Planning Chief in 2016.

Learning Objectives:

  • Assess how equity concerns should be identified at an agency-wide level.
  • Develop a framework for addressing those concerns.
  • Anticipate resources and other considerations for implementing change to better achieve equity.
