Transporting Diverse Populations Online Lesson

Increasing Sensitivity for Transportation Professionals — a free lesson — now more than ever there is a need for more awareness and sensitivity to our many differences. Diversity is within us and all around us. A call for valuing, appreciating and embracing the differences about ourselves and those of our families, friends, neighbors, colleagues and communities.

As a transportation professional you should respect and accept students from diverse backgrounds, beliefs and cultures – they are the same in the goal of safety. Compassion and sensitivity to students as human beings is equally important as their safety.

Title Slide
