Developing Vehicle Rebates and Incentives that Work for Underserved Communities

Electric cars have historically been expensive and out of reach for many due to the high upfront costs. With newer models becoming more affordable and more affordable pre-owned electric cars appearing on the market, electric vehicles (EVs) are becoming more accessible. Vehicle rebates and incentives have also been a key strategy for increasing access to electric cars for low to moderate-income consumers. This panel will explore different strategies to improve access to electric vehicles for historically underserved communities through rebates and incentives.
Expanding Career Opportunities and Pathways in the E-Mobility Sector

The E-Mobility sector mobility will continue to create new workforce and economic opportunities such as charging station installations, automotive services, software developments and engineering. Panelists will discuss how to create pathways to careers in the E-Mobility industry for historically underserved and diverse communities.
Building More Diverse and Inclusive Organizations to Strengthen Partnerships

This session will dive into the conversation "If the E-Mobility sector is going to advance, the ecosystem has to center equity at its core". The first step in this process is building genuine partnerships with more community-based organizations and diverse communities.

How Cities are Centering Equity in Transportation Electrification Programs

Many cities are leading the transportation electrification (TE) movement by working directly with communities to understand their needs and what opportunities they could potentially use. This panel will highlight cities of varying sizes from across the United States to hear different perspectives. Panelists will discuss how their cities have embedded equity into their TE planning process and share lessons learned.
E-Mobility and Public Health



This informative session will explore the intersection of E-Mobility, Air Pollution, and public health. We will discuss how air pollution disproportionately impacts the health and well being of under-resourced and Frontline communities and present strategies to mitigate its impact.
Conducting Community-Based Mobility Needs Assessments


Before implementing a pilot or policy, it’s critical to understand the needs of the community. By conducting a community-based needs assessment, practitioners can create and develop more informed and successful pilots and policies. Panelists will describe how they’ve facilitated community needs assessment, best practices, and lessons learned.

Increasing Access Effectively to Micro-Mobility and Multi-Modal Transportation Options


The global pandemic has showcased the need for a multi-modal transportation system that serves communities, especially frontline communities with limited transportation options. This panel will highlight how to increase access to micro-mobility for historically underserved communities through targeted pilot programs and partnerships between the private and public sectors.
Historical Perspective of Transportation and its Impacts on Frontline Communities


This thought provoking session will provide an overview of the historical, institutional and systemic factors that led to the current transportation landscape while discussing its impact on Frontline communities and identify corrective actions that can be taken to dismantle these barriers.
How Foundations, Utilities, and Others can Invest Effectively in Community-of-Color Led Organizations

This illuminating session will detail pathways for foundations and other allies to effectively and equitably invest in diverse organizations led by people of color working in the E-Mobility space.

Centering Equity in Electric Utility Programs


In order to rectify how frontline communities have typically been excluded from new mobility options, several industry stakeholders are working to identify ways to engage and support these communities, including electric utilities. This panel will explore how utilities have centered equity in programs advancing transportation electrification by supporting community organizations, offering financial incentives, and increasing access to charging station infrastructure.
Driver-Centered Strategies for Helping Uber and Lyft Drivers Move to Electric Cars

With goals being set to electrify transportation network companies (TNC) fleets, it will be important to work with drivers on transitioning to electric vehicles. Most recently, Lyft committed to transitioning to 100% electric vehicles by 2030. Panelists will explore strategies that are centering drivers to more effectively electrify ride-hailing.
Changing The Narrative: Effective Campaigns That Market to Diverse Consumers

If we are going to expand the market share of EV drivers, we will have to change our marketing strategies. The automotive industry spends billions on automotive marketing and as more EVs hit the market, this session will explore how to move beyond the one size fits all marketing strategies with industry leaders.
