Election season is upon us and the mayors of America have a challenging idea perfect for engineers to lead on….
The U.S. Conference of Mayors has proposed an election-year policy agenda called Mayors’ Vision for America: A 2020 Call for Action. See prnewswire.com. The mayors want bipartisan solutions for some of the greatest challenges facing our nation and they are prioritizing those solutions around Infrastructure, Innovation and Inclusion. But, what does the bricks and mortar version of infrastructure, innovation and inclusion tangibly mean and how are they inter-related? How can engineers and contractors respond to this patriotic call?
This paper explores the opportunities before us to work together to respond to this call for action with infrastructure, innovation and inclusion that builds a better, brighter future for all and provides equal opportunity for the American Dream.
