Cultural Competency?

Cultural competency and understanding historical trauma are relevant in the U.S. transportation sector to promote equity, address disparities, engage communities effectively, ensure environmental justice, and foster diversity and inclusion.

By integrating these concepts into transportation planning, policymaking, and service delivery, the sector can strive towards more equitable and inclusive transportation systems that meet the needs of all communities.
