An emerging leader in DEI, Ms. Moore is taking the lead to strategically design equitable practices as a key tool to address our clients’ challenges and create tangible solutions that impact real change.
As the Kansas Department of Transportation’s former assistant bureau chief of transportation planning, Davonna led the $32 million federally funded Truck Parking Information Management System project, which is helping truck drivers locate safe parking more easily, using intelligent transportation systems and emerging technologies to detect vacant spaces to create a real-time data feed of parking availability. “I enjoy helping communities understand the importance of long-range planning. When people understand that factors like demographics, funding opportunity and project prioritization affect a community, I feel as though I’ve done my job,” she says.
“Transportation is on the front lines of innovation and emerging technology, and CDM Smith is a place where I can share the knowledge I’ve gained on these topics and help clients plan for the long term,” Davonna says.
