Connecting the DOTs: Planning & Engagement Leaders Unite to Improve Outreach

Wednesday, May 24 2023

7am Pacific | 10am Eastern (3 hour event)


Connect with transportation planning leaders across America and participate in thoughtful discussions about successful public engagement to better serve our communities.

MetroQuest is happy to bring back Connect the DOTs, a virtual peer-to-peer roundtable for DOT planning leaders to spark insightful dialog about community engagement in the current transportation planning landscape. This invite-only event is your opportunity to share your experiences and learn from your peers in a safe and transparent environment 

Join us on May 24th for this three-hour interactive meeting with planning experts from DOTs across the country. Our goal is to have coast-to-coast DOT representation in the roundtable dialog. You will virtually ‘meet’ your peers, respond to polls, receive real-time feedback, and have rich discussions with industry leaders.  

Don’t miss this opportunity to engage with like-minded colleagues in this unique collaboration opportunity led by people who are just as passionate about public engagement as you are.  

You don’t need to have all the answers to attend—we don’t have them either. But we all share the same integral mission: to better serve and build trust with our communities. This is an open space to not simply share solutions but explain where we are in our efforts. Through shared experiences and aspirations, we can work towards a common goal of better serving our communities. 

In this event, we will discuss:

  • Equity Mapping and Defining Successful Engagement
  • Investing in Disadvantaged Communities
  • The Highs and Lows of Community Engagement
  • How to Qualify to Claim Your Share of Justice40 Funds
