Season 1 Episode 24 - Public leaders are responsible for our most important community goods like transportation, schools, and greenspace. Leadership consultant Chris Hutchinson ensures leaders have the best tools to be effective and achieve the mobility and community outcomes we desire.
Season 1 Episode 23 - Why is US public transit successful in some places and not in others? Christof Spieler believes the answer lies in how leaders deal with public opinion, why they build transit infrastructure in the first place, and the metrics they use to measure success.
Season 1 Episode 22 - From the private sector to the public sector, Gillian Gillett has found that her willingness to point out that the emperor has no clothes is an important tool to use to get the ball rolling on important issues like transportation, housing, and equity.
Mobility is an essential component to the vibrant, equitable, and sustainable cities of our future. To build this future, we need to do more than invest in technology. We need to invest in the people who will make the hard decisions around transportation, land use, housing, economic development, and other aspects of urban life.
Josh Cohen, National Policy Director at TransLoc, started that conversation by building relationships with and sharing ideas from today’s leaders who are imagining and implementing change. He will profile leaders who are doing the heavy lifting to make our communities better and inspire new ones to supplement them. Together, we’ll build The Movement with the goal of sparking tangible change in our communities.
