Digital Discussion: Women Influencers
Tuesday, March 1, 2022
Free Online Program
Help us launch Women’s History Month with a special Digital Discussion about women's roles in transit over the last century.
Learn about pioneering women in transit who challenged a traditionally male dominated field to thrive as transit workers, transit police officers, and subway operators. Explore the incredible stories of women who fought for equal access, argued for improved subway etiquette and even developed cutting edge technological improvements. We’ll also revisit forgotten histories like the debate over creating gender segregated subway cars.
Please Note: This event will take place online. Upon registration, all participants will receive two emails - one will be a receipt and the other will include a Zoom link with instructions on how to participate. We encourage you to download the Zoom app in advance for the best user experience.
All attendees are welcome. You will have the option to turn on automatic captions for this virtual program. Staff will share instructions for how to do so at the start of the event. Please email [email protected] with any questions.
