  • Women’s Work: Bicycle-friendly Communities by Design

    March 2013

    APBP’s fourth annual Women Cycling Project webinar features brilliant women working to make communities more bicycle-friendly.

    Join us as we profile outstanding professionals who develop bicycle plans, projects and programs for communities, encourage children to bicycle to school, and inspire girls to consider careers in transportation.

    Whether you are a student or professional, a woman or man, this webinar will motivate you to address key reasons keeping people from bicycling for transportation: speeding cars and inattentive drivers. This year’s webinar incorporates the 2013 National Women’s History Month theme, Women Inspiring Innovation through Imagination.

    This theme honors generations of women who throughout American history have used their intelligence, imagination, sense of wonder, and tenacity to make extraordinary contributions to the STEM fields. (STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. Visit www.nwhp.org to learn how to incorporate this theme into your 2013 Women’s History Month celebrations.)
