As a member of the Director’s Office of Equity, Sustainability and Tribal Affairs (ESTA), under the direction of the Race and Equity Program Manager, this position is responsible for performing a variety of complex duties, including providing technical assistance to enhance data-driven decisions in support of transportation equity within the state. The incumbent will support the implementation and expansion of the Caltrans Equity Index (EQI). Developed by Caltrans, the EQI identifies and measures undeserved communities by assessing socioeconomic indicators, transportation burdens, and transportation benefits. The incumbent will be responsible for guiding the implementation and adoption of the EQI to inform equitable decision making that eliminates barriers to provide a more equitable transportation system for all Californians.
Responsibilities include reviewing Caltrans programs and plans to identify how the EQI could be incorporated; convening and collaborating with Caltrans Headquarters Divisions and Districts to support the integration of EQI into their processes, plans, or programs; and facilitating workgroup meetings with external partners. Additional responsibilities include identifying research or data needs that support equity and livability goals; reviewing documents and creating reports or other communication materials; and providing subject matter expertise on current and future legislation as it pertains to equity metrics.
Using project management skills and principles, the incumbent is accountable for assessing needs, developing work plans, establishing and meeting delivery time frames, reporting success, elevating challenges, and regularly discussing progress with management. The incumbent should be a self-starter and able to analyze data, develop policy and practice around equity at large, across varying topics with input and direction from the management team. This includes initiating research efforts, compiling information, and drafting materials to support the development of equitable policies. The incumbent must have the ability to work independently and resolve issues while maintaining close attention to detail. The incumbent is expected to produce quality work within requested time frames with minimal supervision.
