Beyond Equity — A Strategy for Developing Critical Leadership in Transportation

BBSP Fellowship Strategy White Paper

In partnership with the National Association of Transportation Officials (NACTO), the Better Bike Share Partnership (BBSP) wants to amplify the work and profile of Black, Brown, and Indigenous professionals of color and allies across the transportation sector. Through a professional development fellowship, participants will co-strategize, learn new skills, and expand their networks with the intention of institutionalizing a vision for equity and social justice within their organizations. The fellowship is designed to hold space for participants to become co-creators in the outcomes, benefits, and levels of interaction and will support the collective and individual growth of Fellows and the communities they work and live in. This white paper is a detailed overview of the insights and research that informed the structure, desired outcomes, and experiences that were included in the BBSP Fellowship for Critical Leadership in Transportation.
