Moderated Q&A with all panelists

For generations, infrastructure projects have resulted in a mixture of impacts and benefits. Many of the impacts flowed to communities that struggle to access opportunities to improve their lives. In this session, we will shine light on the realities of infrastructure development including tradeoffs we have all faced as we strive to deliver solutions that serve the needs of the broadest communities. Panel 1 will focus on the practical realities of infrastructure development including ramifications of our decisions and how steps are being taken to be sure that the long-term interests of entire communities are adequately addressed. Panel 2 will examine how three generations of engineers view their evolving roles in infrastructure development and the challenges of gentrification verses connectivity that enables less advantaged people to access a range of opportunities that enhance their lives. Panel 3 will focus on specific examples of 21st Century Infrastructure projects engaged with the entire cross section of communities and delivering solutions that serve present and future generations in ways that lift all lives.
