ITE Webinar Series – Voices of Diversity & Inclusion

What does diversity & inclusion mean to you in your day-to-day work? Why is it important? What have folks been doing to improve transportation by considering diversity and inclusion? Come join the ITE Oregon Section who is hosting a series of four virtual Section lunchtime meetings from February until April. A fifth student-specific session will also be hosted on the topic.

Description:

Rock Miller will be presenting on liability in traffic crashes with a focus on defense for public agencies and designers. He will discuss and include the following:

  • How liability laws apply to California public agencies and designers.
  • Where areas of major liability exposure can exist.
  • How agencies and designers can reduce their risk.
  • Why it is sometimes better to settle than to fight.

The material is condensed from the popular 8-hour class that Rock co-instructs for UC Berkeley Tech Transfer Program: Meeting the Challenges of Transportation Liability and Risk Management.
