How do concerns about social equity influence infrastructure policy, design, and implementation? How does infrastructure investment affect social and economic equity? With unparalleled federal investment in infrastructure and a broad cultural shift toward questions of equity, it is worth examining how these two trends intersect and influence each other and how they can be aligned to advance shared goals. How do these concepts and aspirations translate into the steel and concrete of actual projects? This panel will bring together experts from the design, construction, economic, and public policy worlds who are grappling with these issues. From transportation to water, sewer, and energy, from a new Penn Station to a Renewable Rikers, how are New York, Toronto, and other cities aligning priorities and building the foundations for the future?
