A month ago, I did something that is now highly illegal and has caused our planet a lot of problems. That thing was travelling. I flew over to New Zealand and attended the Transportations Group Conference. Over 200 people from across New Zealand and other parts of the world attended. Luckily, the conference was held the week before the Covid-19 lockdown restrictions came into place for both Australia and New Zealand.
The theme of this years’ Transportation Group Conference was Equity in transportation. Firstly, I would like to thank AITPM for giving me the opportunity to attend the conference on behalf of the organisation. The conference was incredibly informative as it enabled the attendees to be able to listen to the presentations about initiatives and projects currently happening across NZ. Whilst I was there, I was delighted to hear delegates in NZ express their interest in attending AITPMs upcoming conference. I have come away from the conference reflecting on how I can ensure my projects can be evaluated from an equity lens and feeling very inspired and eager to apply and share these lessons learnt to my clients and others that I work with.
