More on the webinar series:

The intersection of identities and experiences produces different perspectives of mobility for different people. As a result, a gender sensitive mobility transition is about more than one’s identified gender, impacted also by one’s age, ability, economic access, and geographic location, among a myriad other intersectionalities. In this webinar series, we dive into topics that surround the intersectionality of gender and mobility over a series of 30 minute episodes featuring prominent voices in the mobility sector. Understanding these differences is an important step to creating an equitable and gender responsive mobility system, and through a series of discussions with global advocates, professionals, and leaders, we will explore these differences to expand not only our own perceptions, but those of the broader mobility sector.
