During summer 2021, Carnegie Mellon University student and Traffic21 Women in Transportation Fellow Hajra Shahab worked with the Government Relations team at Aurora. Hajra details her experience by saying, “It was an exhilarating experience as I got to work very closely with engineering, safety, and product teams. I was able to deep dive into the understanding of how autonomous vehicles can be made more accessible for people with disabilities. My internship spanned over 12 weeks and I got a chance to learn about different functions of Government Relations. Aurora’s GR team is uniquely placed in the company which gave me a chance to collaborate closely with other teams to define a roadmap for accessible autonomous vehicles for rides product. Working at a company that is redefining the future of transportation made each day challenging yet exciting.
