Call for Abstracts

The ODOT Civil Rights Transportation Symposium Call for Abstracts is now open!  The submission deadline is Friday Oct 14th, 2022 but early abstract submissions are encouraged and welcomed!  Decisions on selected abstracts are expected by November 30th, 2022.  

The Ohio Department of Transportation’s Division of Opportunity, Diversity, & Inclusion (ODI) is seeking abstracts/ideas for workshops that will be held during the Annual Civil Rights Transportation Symposium taking place in April 2023.  The Symposium highlights diversity in the transportation industry.   

The four workshop tracks for the Civil Rights Symposium fall under the following categories:  Construction, Consulting/Consultant Services, Workforce Inclusion, and Business Development.  We are open to creating a fifth track if we get an idea from the abstract submittals.  

Please include with your abstract how the workshop presentation will give information that the audience can apply to their current job/career or benefit their workplace or community.  The Civil Rights Transportation Symposium aims to provide attendees with information that can be applied immediately after the Symposium concludes.    

Feel free to refer to the program booklet for the 2022 Civil Rights Transportation Symposium for a list of workshops that were offered.
