Diversity & Inclusion

Purpose

ITS California has created the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Advisory Committee to help promote diversity, equity, and inclusion through education and growth opportunities for our members, transportation professionals and in our communities.

As a community specializing in transportation, we strive to be as diverse as the members and communities we serve. Our different perspectives lead to different policy and engineering outcomes and we value this diversity. The results and comments received from this survey will help ITS CA formulate a strategic plan related to diversity and inclusion, and develop appropriate actions. This work will happen in 2021. Responses are anonymous and only aggregate data will be shared with ITS, and not all data collected may be used.

If you would like to participate in supporting this effort or would like to give specific non-anonymous feedback, please feel free to contact DEI committee chair Mark Jensen (mjensen@camsys.com).

ITS California stands with the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Communities and condemns all forms of systemic racism, discrimination and intolerance.

ITS CA strongly condemns the year-long surge of racially-motivated violence against the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) communities since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. We stand by our transportation professionals, many with an AAPI heritage, who are directly affected as they seek to improve the spaces and services used by all communities.

While our mission is to educate all sectors on the merits of technology in transportation and connect our members, we also have a duty to speak up when we see these biases and injustices to a community that has done so much for the transportation industry. We will continue to create an inclusive community for people of all backgrounds, including Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders.

ITS CA continues to work towards inclusivity for all existing and future members and we welcome your continued feedback. We have a responsibility to engage our members, colleagues, and communities from underrepresented and disadvantaged backgrounds; our DEI efforts reflect that responsibility.

Please consider joining us in this effort. If you have any ideas for future topics, programming, or policy changes, please email us at its-caadmin@itscalifornia.org.

Respectfully,
