Advancing Core Values: TRB’s Inclusion and Diversity Initiative

The Transportation Research Board’s (TRB’s) support of inclusion and diversity has focused on increasing diversity in the selection of committees and project panels. To broaden and fortify this effort, Executive Director Neil Pedersen has sought to integrate diversity and inclusion into TRB’s organizational culture. This article outlines TRB’s work formalizing and building on best practices, developing a task force, and identifying other actions by staff and volunteers to ensure that TRB represents as many perspectives and opinions as possible. The task force developed an Inclusion and Diversity Strategic Plan which was approved at the January 2018 TRB Executive Committee meeting. A Special Committee on Inclusion and Diversity was formed to oversee implementation of the plan.
