Millwork Conversations Presented by Google | Sustainability Through Transportation

A gathering point for Omaha’s creators, innovators, artists, thought leaders and activators.

Millwork Conversations will provide an opportunity to learn from people across communities right here in Nebraska and across the country about new ideas and what’s possible – how to push past real and imagined boundaries. Each month will provide an inspiring, memorable experience for attendees through compelling conversations.

In April, we will discuss the importance of Sustainability through Transportation with a talk by our friends at Metro Transit: Nicole Ebat and Annie Pigaga!

Nicole Ebat is the Sr. Manager of Communications and Community Relations at Metro Transit. Her goal is to make sure taking the bus is easy to understand, easy to learn, and easy to access for everyone in the metro, no matter why they ride the bus. She spends a lot of her time helping people figure out not only how public transit can fit within their daily lives, but how it can add sparks of fun and adventure too.

She encourages people to learn about the important role transit plays in connecting people to each other, allowing them to grow and shape their community with a spotlight on sustainability.

Nicole grew up using Las Vegas’ public transit system to get around and has since lived and relied on transit in places like Chicago and Portland, Oregon.

She now lives in Omaha without a car and is currently pursuing her Master’s of Public Administration at the University of Nebraska at Omaha. Nicole is committed to fostering connectivity, empowerment, and environmental consciousness through public transit.

Annie Pigaga has worked at Metro for nine years as a powerhouse champion of public transit and community outreach. Her superpower is taking complicated subjects and explaining them in a way that helps everyone understand. Armed with that, her creativity, and undeniable talent for graphic design, she’s helped amplify and advance Metro’s messages in new ways, especially with projects like Omaha’s first BRT line (ORBT), real-time bus tracking, app-based payment system, and Metro’s strategic plan, MetroNEXT. She lives in North Omaha with her grumbly pug, Winston.
