Connecting Players, Policies and Projects

The Equitable Infrastructure Week conference brings together thought leaders, policymakers, industry experts, and advocates to address critical issues surrounding equitable access, development, and sustainability within the infrastructure landscape. 
 
Join us in shaping a future where all communities can thrive through inclusive and resilient infrastructure.

To create a future where all communities benefit from equitable and sustainable infrastructure
 
Mission
Our mission is to address disparities in access to essential infrastructure like transportation, energy, affordable housing and communication, particularly in underserved areas. Through collaboration with businesses, governments, and civil society, we strive to meet diverse community needs, enhance quality of life, and promote inclusion.

The National Equitable Infrastructure Week (EIW) Conferences gather leaders, innovators, and stakeholders from across the nation to address and promote equitable development in infrastructure. This series of conferences feature a diverse array of panels, masterclasses, and keynote sessions dedicated to discussing best practices, innovative solutions, and policy frameworks that ignites equity in infrastructure investments.

Attendees engage with experts from various sectors, including government, private industry, and nonprofits, to explore collaborative approaches to creating inclusive, resilient, and sustainable infrastructure. Themed "Connecting the Players, Policies, and Projects," the conferences are poised to be a pivotal platform for driving forward-thinking conversations and actionable strategies prioritizing equity in the nation's infrastructure projects.
