As COVID-19 increases digitally-driven deliveries, how can logistics and equity be fused more closely? Intensified stress on digital/physical networks has heightened the urgency for rethinking how equity and efficiency are integrated in the movement of goods, services, information, and people. Building network capacity and resilience, for long-term sustainability, requires an honest account of how benefits and burdens are distributed through systems. That account begins by interrogating issues like: the tangible effects of how things are moved by the system, the role and risks of essential delivery workers, and the implications of private ownership of global infrastructure. Join AIANY to examine some of these issues in this webinar.
